Enola Holmes Is An Amazing New Detective Character On Netflix
Enola Holmes is a 2020 American mystery film based on the book series of the same name by Nancy Springer. The film, which centres upon the teenage sister of an already-famous Sherlock Holmes, is directed by Harry Bradbeer and written by Jack Thorne.
The bright, breezy Netflix film Enola Holmes, which is based on a series of YA novels by Nancy Springer, benefits hugely from Brown’s lively, intelligent and charming performance. She’s so good here that even the character’s tendency to turn to the camera and address the audience — which she does a great deal (seriously, this film has more asides than an adodecahedron) — never gets wearying. You even start to find yourself looking forward to them, if you can imagine.

Enola Holmes Story
Enola awakens on her 16th birthday (she was 14 in the novel) to discover that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) — an eccentric but brilliant thinker and suffragist — is missing. Following clues involving anagrams and cyphers, she sets off to London to find her, all while attempting to evade her older brothers Mycroft (Sam Claflin) and Sherlock (Henry Cavill), who are seeking to cart Enola off to a finishing school.
