Dir. Bill Condon (UK 2015, 104mins PG)
Ian McKellen is wonderful as the long-retired private detective at the end of his life who is happy to look after bees until his housekeeper’s son revisits an old unsolved case. Set in1947, this is a lovely twist on the Sherlock Holmes legend. Introduced by crime novelist and Sherlock Holmes expert, David Stewart Davis, who has written extensively on the subject.
