Mr. Holmes --- ( beekeeper)
« on: November 27, 2015, 05:09:46 pm »
Ian McKellen  plays an aging Sherlock Holmes, retired and living in a country house where his primary interest is BEEKEEPING.  And with a young apprentice beekeeper.  Good movie, available on Redbox.

Yes, well, if it had not been for the beekeeping aspect and good acting by McKellen and Laura Linley (sp?) and the actor playing the boy, I wouldn't have thought as much of it, but the beekeeping was what sold me on it.  The Sherlock aspect was a little weak, I thought, but then he was supposedly suffering from Alzheimers by then.  Still, as I said, I enjoyed the movie.
