First Look at ‘Enola Holmes’, the Teen Sleuth and Sister of Sherlock Holmes

Netflix has released a handful of images for their upcoming film Enola Holmes. The film is based on Nancy Springer’s book series about Sherlock and Mycroft’s rebellious teen sister Enola. The streaming service acquired the film earlier this year from Lionsgate.

The film will feature numerous British actors like Helena Bonham Carter, Fiona Shaw, Frances de la Tour, Louis Partridge, Burn Gorman, Susan Wokoma, and Adeel Akhtar. However, the core three Holmes will be played by Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, and Sam Clafin.

I like what I see here. I’m a huge Sherlock fan though so I’ll watch almost any adaptation or twist on the classic literary sleuth. The cast looks great, and I’m especially interested in seeing Cavill as Sherlock. He’s really impressed me in the last couple of years and I can’t wait to see his take on the character.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on the beloved Edgar-nominated book series, 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.

Enola Holmes will hit Netflix sometime in September 2020.
