Film - Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) Presented by Barbara Steffek-Hill
Late 19th century London is famous for the 221B Baker Street address of eccentric genius Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.). Dr. John Watson (Jude Law) remains his grounded, loyal friend and other half of the intrepid crime solving duo. In the wake of seemingly unrelated murders, Holmes and Watson investigate. The more they learn, it’s obvious Holmes’ arch-enemy Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris) has his evil fingerprints all over it, and he plans something big. The antagonists play cat and mouse, matching wits every step of the way. What seems like the final showdown in the saga of Holmes and Moriarty happens above Switzerland’s famous Reichenbach Falls. Barbara Steffek-Hill presents a series of classic and contemporary films from her personal favorites.
