Enola Holmes was just recently added to Netflix and has become one of the most popular movies. It has so many different aspects to it, and it can be enjoyed by anybody. The movie can jump from romance to action within a few seconds, and certainly keeps you on your toes.
Enola Holmes is a book series written by Nancy Springer, which was inspired by “The tales of Sherlock Holmes” A famous series written by Conan Doyle. It takes place in London in the 1900’s. Enola was living with her mother after her father passed away, and her two older brothers (Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes) left home. When her mother went missing, both Sherlock and Mycroft returned home to the house a mess and Enola not acting “like a young lady”. Mycroft tries to send her to a boarding school for young lady’s, but instead she runs away in search of her mother where she meets Tewkesbury. Not only does she have to outsmart the greatest detective out there, who happens to be her brother Sherlock, but she also has to get Tewkesbury out of his family trouble. Does her mother even want to be found, or is she just hiding from a darker secret?
Personally, I would give this movie a 4 out of 5 stars. I did enjoy the plot and it did keep viewers questioning about what would happen next. Another thing I enjoyed about the movie is how no matter who told Enola she couldn’t do something, she would just fight harder to prove them wrong. One thing I wasn’t a big fan of was the foreshadowing, at some points it would add to the suspense but other points it pulled me out of the story. It’s definitely not your typical action movie, but it does send a good message about no matter who or where you are, you can do anything.
