So we thought we’d had just about every incarnation possible of Sherlock Holmes but now Netflix continue with their run of one off films and as we now head into the Autumn we have the Enola Holmes trailer featuring ……his sister.
England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change. On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history. Based on the beloved book series by Nancy Springer, ENOLA HOLMES is a dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world’s greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister. The game is afoot. Directed by Harry Bradbeer and based upon the novel by Nancy Springer with a screenplay by Jack Thorne, The film stars Millie Bobby Brown, Sam Claflin, Adeel Akhtar, Fiona Shaw, Frances de la Tour, Louis Partridge, Burn Gorman, Susan Wokoma with Henry Cavill and Helena Bonham Carter.
With the tagline, ‘Mystery rubs in the family’ (in ours it’s noses), a decent cast and what looks some half decent action the Enola Homes trailer looks pretty good. The film opens on Netflix on 23rd September 2020
