ENOLA HOLMES (2020): The Things I Liked…

Enola Holmes, a drama/mystery about the teenage sister of famous detective Sherlock Holmes is not a terrible film.

Focused on Enola’s search for her newly missing mother (Helena Bonham Carter), which then leads to the teenager becoming a super-sleuth in her own right, Millie Bobby Brown is great in the lead role.

Henry Cavill and Sam Claflin as Enola’s big brothers Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes are also quite entertaining to watch; as are the moments of fun dialogue. Yet, overall, it’s really during the first two or three action sequences that I had the most fun.

Director Harry Bradbeer’s movie is quite engaging at first. It’s just that once the film’s first action sequence had taken place, I found myself disappointed because, not too long afterwards, my engagement started to drift, only to peak again during other physical scenes.

A young woman’s journey to choosing her path in life, regardless of pressures from many around her is what Enola Holmes is really about. I generally enjoy stories like these. Neverthless, even though there are moments in this movie that I’ll remember fondly, the story edit and pacing didn’t leave me as content with the finished product as anticipated.

Watch Enola Holmes if you’re curious. It is quite charming and Sam Claflin is great at playing unlikably cantankerous aristocrats. If you’ve seen him in The Riot Club (2014), you understand.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Enola Holmes (2020).


Enola Holmes, the teen sister of the famous Sherlock Holmes is the focus of the latest crime/mystery/drama starring Henry Cavill, Millie Bobby Brown, Helena Bonham Carter and Sam Claflin.

Directed by Harry Bradbeer; Enola sets off to find her newly missing mother and in the process becomes a super-sleuth in her own right.

First of all, am I the only one who had no idea that Mr. Holmes had a sister?

I’m definitely watching this one to learn more about Enola and to see the Cavill/Claflin on screen chemistry play out.

Also, I’ve never watched Stranger Things on Netflix so this will be my first Bobby Brown movie. Lastly, as a long time fan of Bonham-Carter’s quirkiness in general, this should be fun.

Fiona Shaw, Adeel Akhtar, Frances de la Tour, Louis Partridge, Susan Wokoma, Burn Gorman and Jay Simpson also star.

Enola Holmes Release Dates: September 23rd, 2020 (US)…
