Storyline

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.

Trivia

Twice, Enola offers laboring boys £5 for their clothing. £5 in 1880 would be the equivalent of approximately £350 (US$455) in 2020. However, the buying power would be much greater: a common laborer earned about 3s 9d (three shillings and 9 pence) per week, or £9.15s., per year. Thus, Enola has offered a half a year's salary to the laborers for their clothes. See more »

Goofs

The martial arts handbook's title uses the term "jujutsu" but that is from the Hepburn Romanisation of Japanese which was not published until 1886 (2 years after the film is set) and did not become common until much later. In 19th century English "jiujitsu" was the preferred spelling. Later in the film, Enola pronounces it "jujitsu" in contrast with the title of the manual she studied. See more »

Another Good Film from Netflix
21 October 2020 | by Way_I_See_ItSee all my reviews

This was a good flick about Sherlock Holmes' younger sister. Aimed firmly at the young adult/family market, it is a well-made and well-acted period piece. This is a good choice for an evening of family friendly entertainment. Recommended for young and old with a Netflix subscription.
