Mr. Holmes (2015)
Based on the novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin. Directed by Oscar-winning director Bill Condon, and written by Jeffrey Hatcher. Starring Ian McKellen and Laura Linney.
The story takes place in 1947. The long-retired Sherlock Holmes lives in a remote Sussex farmhouse with his housekeeper and her son. In the twilight of his life, Holmes tends to his bees, writes in his journal, and grapples with the diminishing power of his mind. With the help of his housekeeper's son, Holmes revisits an old, unsolved case in an effort to find answers of his own to questions about life and love.
