Enola Holmes is a 2020 Netflix film that’s delightful and appropriate for the entire family.
10 out of 10 stars. This is one long adventure ride with a lot of humor thrown in.
Enola Holmes is the 16 year old younger sister of Sherlock Holmes and his older brother Mycroft Holmes. Their father died when Enola was young and their mother raised her alone without a governess and very unconventionally. She taught her science and jujitsu in addition to word games. And Enola became skilled at all of them. Then on her sixteenth birthday, her mother disappears (intentionally). Enola contacts Sherlock and Mycroft, her older brothers, to help her find her mom. Instead, they intend on shipping her off to a boarding school.
So Enola follows the clues her mother left behind, finds the hidden cash, and embarks on her own adventure in finding her mother. It leads her to a train where she saves the life of a missing vicount who later becomes her love interest. Then it leads her to London to a warehouse filled with explosives and a women’s movement.
That’s really all you need to know.
10 out of 10 stars. I almost didn’t watch this because it stars the actress who played Eleven/Jane in Stranger Things which I hated. But she’s delightful in this film.
