In 1947, an aging Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) returns from a journey to Japan, where, in search of a rare plant with powerful restorative qualities, he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote seaside farmhouse, Holmes faces the end of his days tending to his bees, with only the company of his housekeeper and her young son, Roger. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love – before it's too late.

What the critics are saying:
Philadelphia Inquirer, Steven Rea
Mr. Holmes is about how the past defines us. It is also very much about regret and trying to put things right.
Los Angeles Times. Kenneth Turan
Maneuvering shrewdly within the boundaries of the traditional canon and aided by the impeccable performance of Ian McKellen, Bill Condon directs an elegant puzzler that presents the sage of Baker Street dealing with the one thing he's never had to contend with before: his own emotions.
Portland Oregonian, Marc Mohan
There will always be plenty of fictional geniuses solving impossible crimes, but Holmes, it turns out, is where the heart is.
