He’s got a sister!
Netflix has another all star cast on its hands with Millie Bobby Brown as the titular character (Stranger Things) Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes (The Witcher), Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Holmes (The Crown), and Sam Claflin as Mycroft Holmes (Love Wedding Repeat).
Below is the official synopsis of the Netflix original film:
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.
The film is in partnership with Legendary Entertainment. Harry Bradbeer is directing (Killing Eve and Fleabag), with Jack Thorne writing the script (His Dark Materials and The Cursed Child). The film is based off of the six book series by Nancy Springer, so if it does well there is enough material to spawn some sequels.
Netflix’s Enola Holmes is set to premiere exclusively on the streamer September 23.
