Millie Bobby Brown stars as the title character, while also serving as a producer on the film. Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, Adeel Akhtar, Fiona Shaw, Frances de la Tour, Louis Partridge, Susie Wokoma and Helena Bonham Carter appear in supporting roles. The distribution rights to the film were taken over by Netflix due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised Brown’s performance. Enola Holmes was released on September 23, 2020. The story is about the teenage sister of the already-famous Sherlock Holmes, who goes to London in search of her mother who has disappeared. She is extremely intelligent, observant, and insightful, and defies the social norms for women of the time. Her mother, Eudoria, has taught her everything from chess to jujitsu and encouraged her to be a strong-willed and independent thinking young woman. The flowers left by her mother reveal secret messages and lead to hidden money, which Enola uses to escape disguised as a boy. On the train, she finds the young Viscount Tewkesbury hidden in a travel bag. She thinks he is a nincompoop but warns him that a man in a brown bowler hat is on the train searching for him.
They travel to London, where they part ways, and Enola decides to pause the search for her mother and instead save him because he is not capable of defending himself. She finds and deciphers a message in a newspaper but deduces it was not from her mother. They reach a fork in the road and, rather than returning to London and face Tewesbury’s uncle, who she has deduced was trying to kill him. The estate is seemingly deserted, but Linthorn ambushes them, firing a shotgun. Enola trips him using a Jujitsu move, causing a fatal head injury. She shoots her grandson in the chest, but he survives thanks to a plate of armor under his clothes. They decide to leave, and Sherlock notices a clue, but chooses not to look for it. All the while Enola has been watching the news as a lodgings while Sherlock and Mycroft discuss Enola, Sherlock and Sherlock decide to become her guardian and Sherlock suggests becoming her guardian. The movie was originally planned for a theatrical release by Warner Bros. Pictures, but the distribution rights were takenover by Netflix because of the CoV pandemic, and the film will be released in September 2020. It was later picked up by The Weinstein Company, who released the film on September 21, 2014.
