CB: The past decade has seen a new love for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s defining creation, the venerable detective Sherlock Holmes. Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes films and Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat’s Sherlock series (as well as CBS’s Sherlock) have modernized the character through changes in tone and era, respectively. These updates have left many classic elements behind though. Mr. Holmes, director Bill Condon’s newest film, addresses the oldest parts of Doyle’s character, transforming their age into the thematic core of a new story. The result is a soft-spoken, clever, and surprisingly heart-filled film that ought to please fans of the great detective, both young and old.
