Sherlock Holmes

Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Rachel McAdams, Jude Law

What it’s about: Robert Downey Jr dons the magnifying glass for Guy Ritchie’s update of the Sherlock Holmes story. Casting Jude Law as Watson is utter
brilliance. Early clips from the film created buzz as early as July. McAdams stars as Irene Adler, a woman who knows how to effectively push Holmes’ buttons.

SheKnows fun fact: With Downey as Holmes, look for Sherlock Holmes to be the toast of the holiday week.

It’s Complicated

Starring: Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, John Krasinski

What it’s about: Writer/director Nancy Meyers (What Women Want, Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday) directs Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and
Alec Baldwin in a comedy about love, divorce and everything in between. Jane (Streep) is the mother of three grown kids, owns a thriving Santa Barbara bakery/restaurant and has — after a decade of
divorce — an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (Baldwin). But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things start to get
complicated. An innocent meal together turns into the unimaginable — an affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness (Lake Bell), Jane is now, of all things, the other woman.

Streep and Baldwin in It's Complicated

SheKnows fun fact: It’s Complicated is one of only a few romantic comedies out this holiday season including Sarah Jessica Parker’s Did You Hear About the
Morgans
?
