Mr. Holmes 2015 drama
available for streaming on Prime Video
This gentle movie about retired crime fighting hero Sherlock Holmes, at age 93, is for adults searching for an alternative to the tsunami of super hero flicks. Holmes deals with aging in his own way at his country retreat overlooking the white Cliffs of Dover. He takes a young boy under his wing, and fits comfortably into the role of the wise pseudo-Grandfather as he putters about his estate tending to his honey bee hives. In this film, Holmes leaves behind the cold, pure logical man of the past and makes a compelling connection with real people. This is a real sleeper keeper with solid acting.
