Mr. Holmes | reviewed by: William O'Donnell | December 9, 2015
entertainment value
The disjointed plot can be a bit cumbersome but the masterful acting carries this interesting re-imagining of Holmes until it fits together.
genre Crime | Drama
synopsis The story is set in 1947, following a long-retired Holmes living in a Sussex village with his housekeeper and rising detective son. But then he finds himself haunted by an unsolved 50-year old case. Holmes' memory isn't what it used to be, so he only remembers fragments of the case: a confrontation with an angry husband, a secret bond with his beautiful but unstable wife.
