To many readers, Sherlock Holmes is a one-man detective agency and the ultimate man of mystery. To his little sister, Enola, he is simply her beloved older brother. As the legend goes, when Sherlock disappeared into the bowels of London’s crime world in 1891, it was Enola who eventually found him but only after she had been transformed into a detective-for-hire herself. Now Enola and Sherlock are reunited, with new challenges to confront them both: A missing girl; shadowy plots that threaten global security; and a past that refuses to stay buried.

What is the movie about?
The movie will follow Enola Holmes as she tries to find a missing girl. Once that case is solved, she unlocks an even bigger mystery, one that leads her to a conspiracy. It’s not quite Holmes’ usual style of mystery and it’s definitely not the same woman who would play the part of his assistant in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories.
Who is Enola Holmes?
Enola Holmes is a detective-for-hire and the little sister of the famous Sherlock Holmes. She’s never been particularly thrilled by the role of private investigator, but cases keep coming for her to solve, and as she does so she begins to realise that there may be more to her work than just a brief case here or an unsolved case there. Oddly enough, Enola Holmes isn’t Enola not Sherlock, it’s not the same woman! The character we see in this story is a completely new person with a completely different background.
What makes this movie interesting to watch?
I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t crazy about this movie when it was first announced. I liked the idea of a woman playing Holmes, but there was something about it that didn’t sit right with me. However, when I saw the trailers for this movie, I thought that it might actually be interesting. And let me tell you they don’t disappoint. This movie has a very different tone from anything you’ve ever seen with these characters before. I know that sounds silly, but it’s true. While I still don’t love Enola Holmes in this movie, the character of Enola Holmes is so different from what we usually see as Sherlock Holmes that you almost forget that you’re watching a version of Sherlock Holmes. This is a very good thing, and it makes the movie interesting because we get to spend time with Enola and not with Sherlock. This is one of those movies where it seems like the director started out knowing what he was doing but then lost control over his direction.
