Release: Jun. 19th, 2015
Runtime: 1 hour, 43 minutes
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.

Ian McKellen is the elderly detective Sherlock Holmes, who we find out is much different in real life than the fictional Holmes of the novels.
It's sprinkled with clever references to canonical Holmes factoids and how McKellen's Holmes regards his famous image with some disdainful amusement (best exemplified by the sequence where he visits a cinema that's playing a film based on his exploits), though that only goes so far in providing any ....
McKellen, looking and sounding more like John Gielgud as the years pass, is a striking combination of power and fragility as Holmes and Linney, an actress accustomed to playing unsympathetic characters, does infuse a likability into the character that is not in the screenplay.
