Movie Info

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.

[Millie Bobby Brown] has been transfixing audiences for three seasons on Netflix's sci-fi smash "Stranger Things," but even to fans of the series, her performance here is a revelation.

I'd like to see a follow-up - only this time, get a real mystery writer involved at the screenplay stage.

October 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

At a little more than two hours, "Enola Holmes" may be a tad long, but there are a lot of threads to unravel and it does so more than satisfactorily.

[Millie Bobby Brown] is a delight. She gets to be joyful and she is just radiant, effervescent, and has incredible comic timing.

An ideal work for its target audience, with its positive and affirmational message and the considerable charm of its star.

The Arthur Conan Doyle estate needn't fret over unauthorized cribbing. All that's really left of Holmes here is the name.
