NY Post: " “Mr. Holmes,” out Friday, isn’t your usual Sherlock Holmes flick. There’s no no pipe, no foggy London streets.
The story is set in 1947, as a cantankerous, retired, 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen), whiles away his days at his Sussex, England, cottage. His only companions are his brusque housekeeper (Laura Linney) and her young son (Milo Parker). When the boy takes an interest in the elderly icon, the detective spins him the tale of his final case — one that still causes him regret."
