Why should we watch "Enola Holmes" on Netflix right now?

Updated: Oct 19, 2020

There's a new "HOLMES" in the town!

1. Let us have a word about the character, Enola Holmes, performed by Millie Bobby Brown.

Enola Holmes, the sister of Sherlock Holmes is on a mission to find her mother, who actually taught her to live life and how to deal with obstructions incoming. She manages to find a getaway plan to get rid of her brothers as they were kinda troublemakers for her. But her will won’t be broken, and in the Netflix film “Enola Holmes,” directed by Harry Bradbeer, our title character proves this to anyone in doubt.

Her mother was disappeared on Enola's 16th birthday and Enola comes to discover this in the morning. Later she unwillingly finds herself under the care of her brothers Mycroft (Sam Claflin) and Sherlock (Henry Cavill). Mycroft, the elder brother was not amused by the way she had been bought up by her mother to live independently, the reason being Mycroft insisted Enola to go to school.

2. Her amazing DETECTIVE work.

After she finally made her mind to search her mother, she'd gone through all the clues and started digging information out of it On her way to the city, she crosses paths with Tewkesbury (Louis Partridge), a young lord also on the run from a suffocating fate. All together they made a very good pair and that's why I recommend you to watch this. While Enola looks for her mother and tackles other mysteries in the process, England is on the cusp of change, with an expansion of voting rights being decided in the House of Lords. You will be flattered to see Enola's cute expressions and the way she says "opposite of Enola is alone" is a real fun game.

3. 'Enola Holmes' is a fiery feminist film about Sherlock Holmes' teenage sister.

Unlike the ideal Victorian lady of late 19th century British society who are kind of busy in embroidery work and read romantic novels, Enola Holmes was totally different from that. She had an interest in literature, chemistry, table tennis, and marshall arts. She gained all her skills from her mother which acquired courtesy of her free-thinking feminist mother, Eudoria Holmes (Helena Bonham Carter). The young woman refuses to comply with society's assigned gender roles, whether they be marrying a man or wearing an itchy hat.

4. Beautiful and limited interaction of Enola's and Tewkesbury.

Enola's feelings for Tewkesbury, in particular, abruptly flip-flop from annoyance to admiration with little interaction between the characters.

Though their potential romance isn't meant to be at the forefront of the plot, and she claims to grow more fond of him during his absence, the rapid progression of their closeness could've been slowed down to feel more authentic.

5. 'Enola Holmes' is a fiery feminist film about Sherlock Holmes' teenage sister.

But the protagonist shouldn't be compared to Sherlock, author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's mastermind detective. While many of Sherlock's cases are known to be complicated and all his movies directly rush in a hurry by directly taking you to the case. All the cases are impossible for anyone to solve aside from the famous detective to figure out, his sister's first attempt at solving a crime is fairly straightforward and easy to follow. Enola spends more time dodging her brothers, learning some fresh detective work. This may be disappointing to those accustomed to more sophisticated detective work but in my view, the movie is perfectly balanced.
