The movie is based on Nancy Springer’s book series. “Enola.” A TV show is also arriving on Netflix in September regarding the title. Enola is Sherlock Holmes’s rebellious and modern teen sister. It is flowing with a political journey aspect as Enola fights for her freedom to be a woman in her own right. Henry Cavill plays the role of world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes in the movie. His character arc leans more emotional than crime-solving as the detective is forced to get to know his younger sibling and “learn to care for someone for the first time.”

In Netflix Enola Holmes, the story is interesting. Enola is raised and taught by her eccentric beloved mother, Eudoria (Helena Bonham Carter). In the story, she is a free spirit who’s pretty good at fisticuffs. But wondrous when it comes to word puzzles and reading. Her mom disappears on the girl’s 16th birthday. After that, Enola’s older brother, Mycroft (Sam Claflin), orders her to go to finishing school. Schooling is not something Enola likes. She chases by finding hidden clues left by her mother. She disguises herself as a boy and escapes on a train. During that, she meets a young lord (Louis Partridge) also on the lam, and heads to London to find her mother but uncovers an evil conspiracy involving human rights.

The Movie

Brown’s older sister, Paige, originally put Springer’s books on her radar. She wants to carry over Enola’s wit from page to screen. According to her “She was so intelligent, but she used it in more of a humorous way whereas Sherlock Holmes really didn’t.”

But as per reports, there is a lawsuit that has been filed against the movie. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s estate is suing Netflix as they have used the author’s last ten stories about the character. Those stories are published between 1923 and 1927 and not available for the public domain.
