Watch Now: Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill in Enola Holmes
Netflix quietly dropped the trailer for Enola Holmes; a spinoff film that will put Sherlock’s younger sister in the spotlight.
The film stars Millie Bobby Brown as the titular character, along with Henry Cavill as Sherlock and Sam Claflin as Mycroft. Also coming along for the ride is Helena Bonham Carter (who plays everyone’s mum in the film.
The film is narrated by Bobby Brown, who often breaks the fourth wall – in the trailer she informs viewers that her name is the word ‘alone’ in reverse (and so it is).
You can check out the whole synopsis below:
“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 film will be out on September 23, 2020 on Netflix.
