Celebrated British actor Ian McKellen plays an ageing and more reclusive version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s famed fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes. With acting support from Laura Linney and rising British star Milo Parker, outstanding make-up prowess from Brits Dave and Lou Elsey, this riveting drama was co-produced by the UK’s BBC Films and See-Saw Films.





Set in 1947, long-retired and entering the later years of his life, Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) faces unreliable memory as well as the myth of his own legacy. He relies heavily on his housekeeper's son (Milo Parker) as he revisits the still-unsolved case that led to him retiring.
