DIRECTOR: BARRY LEVINSON

CAST: NICHOLAS ROWE, ALAN COX, SOPHIE WARD, ANTHONY HIGGINS

Homicidal cream cakes, stained glass knights leaping to life, and plenty of other unforgettable moments lend mad energy to the little-known story of the first meet-cute encounter between a young Holmes and the future Dr. Watson at an English boarding school, which in no time leads them to the investigation of a rash of blowpipe deaths and cracking adventures, rendered with panache by Levinson, Executive Producer Steven Spielberg, and the effects wizards at Industrial Light and Magic.

Young Sherlock Holmes is screening as part of the Playtime: Family Matinee series.
