Netflix has released the first full trailer for Enola Holmes! The Netflix film stars Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) in the titles role, who is the younger sister of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. The movie actually looking pretty damn fun and exciting! I enjoyed what this trailer delivered and I’m more excited to see this film than I thought I would be.
In the story, the young detective embarks on her first adventure to find her missing mother. At the same time she is trying to escape her brothers Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft Holmes (Sam Claflin).
Based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated book series The Enola Holmes Mysteries, Enola Holmes “tells the story of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers. But soon realizing they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s woman can do… she runs away to London to find her. Meeting a cast of memorable characters along the way, Enola’s caught in the middle of a conspiracy that could alter the course of political history. Enola Holmes puts a dynamic new female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family.”
The film was directed by Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, The Aeronauts). It also stars Adeel Akhtar (The Big Sick, Les Miserables), Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve, Harry Potter films), Frances de la Tour (Into the Woods, Harry Potter films), Louis Partridge (Medici), Burn Gorman (Pacific Rim), Susan Wokoma (Crazyhead, Year of the Rabbit), and Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown, The King’s Speech, Harry Potter films).
The film will be available for streaming on Wednesday, September 23rd.
