The story is set in 1947, following a long-retired Holmes living in a Sussex village with his housekeeper and her young son. But then he finds himself haunted by a thirty-year old case. Holmes memory isn't what it used to be, so he only remembers fragments of the case: a confrontation with an angry husband, and a secret bond with his beautiful, but unstable wife.
The film is set in 1947 prior to the nationalization of the railways, but the train in the opening sequence has the British Railways post-1956 crest on the tender and is hauling British Railways Standard Mark 1 carriages which were not introduced onto the railways until 1951. The engine hauling the train is an ex-LMS Railway Jubilee Class locomotive which would not have been seen in Sussex which was served by the Southern Railway in 1947. See more »
"Mr. Holmes" is an imaginary and revisionist take on Sherlock Holmes as a 93-year old dispirited and retired detective, featuring the incomparable Ian McKellen in the title role. This 2015 British-American film , based on Mitch Cullin's 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind, takes place in Sussex two years after the end of the Second World War. This interpretation, among the many Sherlock Holmes we have seen, focuses on the lonely and contemplative man struggling to remember his last case, not the analytical mind associated with the world's most famous fictional detective.
