Mr Holmes

Mr Holmes (Bill Condon, 2015) Ian McKellan, Laura Linney, Hiroyuki Sanada

How many Sherlock Holmes films are there? Where's the list? This one has an unexpected actor as an aging, dementing SH. Also unexpected is the casting of Laura Linney –  an ordinary American actress trying to do an English regional accent. Were no English actresses available - or did the American director just want to have her on his set? The child, Milo Parker, is very good. I hope he survives without PTSD, despite his no doubt Mrs Worthington mother.
