Carl checks out the new Enola Holmes trailer
The game is afoot over on Netflix. First announced some time ago, the streaming giant is bringing us the film adaptation of novelist Nancy Springer’s imaginative book series of ‘Enola Holmes‘. Set in 19th century England, the books and the film follows the adventures of the 16 years old Enola Holmes. A junior sleuth, Enola awakens one morning to discover that her beloved mother has vanished, leaving behind various assortments of gifts but no clue as to where she has gone. This leads to Enola being placed into the care of her two older brothers, Sherlock and Mycroft. Both are intent on sending Enola away to become a ‘proper lady’ at a snooty finishing school but, of course, Enola has other ideas, the least of which is tracking down and finding her mother.
Netflix dropped a small teaser for the film last week which was amusing and entertaining and has now dropped the first full trailer ahead of the films’ debut on September 23rd. Grab your magnifying glass, your investigation kit, and detect the trailer right here:
Enola is played by Millie Bobby Brown, once again starring in a Netflix production after her star-making turn in ‘Stranger Things‘. Ms. Brown is ably assisted by Helena Bonham-Carter as her mother, Sam Clafin as Mycroft Holmes and the quite brilliant Henry Cavill in what looks to be a terrific turn as the legendary Sherlock Holmes. The film is directed by Harry Bradbeer who has directed ‘Fleabag‘ and ‘Killing Eve‘ amongst others from a script by Jack Thorne (The Fades, Wonder) adapted from the Nancy Springer novels. From what the trailer reveals to us, the film looks to be a fascinating family film that all can sit down together and enjoy. Some of the younger children and possibly most of the teenagers will identify with Millie Bobby Brown, youngsters will recognize Mr. Cavill from his time as ‘Superman‘ while the adults will know of Cavill, Clafin, and Ms. Bonham-Carter and their works. It all looks like a great deal of fun is to be had and appears to be very entertaining.
It is elementary to reveal that the film will debut on Netflix from September 23rd.
