The film is based on the book The Enola Holmes Mysteries by Nancy Springer. It puts a spin to Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories by giving Sherlock and Mycroft a bubbly younger sister– Enola.
After the mysterious disappearance of her mother, Enola finds herself in the care of her brothers who wanted to send her away to study at a school for “proper” young ladies. Enola makes her escape to find her mother, stumbling upon a conspiracy involving a young runaway Lord.
The film is directed by Harry Bradbeer with a screenplay from Jack Thorne. It also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Louis Partridge, and more. As the post revealed through an anagram, Enola Holmes will premiere on Netflix this September 23.
