Mr. Holmes

An aged, retired Sherlock Holmes deals with early dementia as he tries to remember both his final case and a mysterious woman whose memory haunts him. He also befriends a fan, the young son of his housekeeper, who wants him to work again.

Absolutely lovely in every regard. McKellan and Linney deliver flawlessly as this family-friendly tale unfolds, capturing  the audience of every age in its narrative net. A delight of mystery and intrigue with heart at its heart.
