Netflix released the official Enola Holmes trailer, and it looks fantastic

Enola Holmes, the Netflix original film starring Millie Bobby Brown as the sister to the famous Sherlock Holmes, has released its official trailer. It looks to be a fast-paced adventure and the trailer gives us a better breakdown of the storyline.

Netflix recently announced that Enola Holmes will release on Sept. 23. Brown stars alongside Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, Helena Bonham Carter, and Fiona Shaw.

The film is based on the novel The Enola Holmes Mysteries by Nancy Springer.  There are six novels in the young adult detective series of stories.  In the stories, Enola is fourteen, making her 20 years younger than her brother Sherlock. It appears that the film may also follow this aging of the characters.

You can view the official trailer that was released by Netflix below.

We can see from the trailer that Enola isn’t your conventional female according to 19th-century rules. Being the sister of a famed detective has made Enola very inquisitive and not your typical lady, per the standards of the day.

In the 19th-century, a lady is never seen in pubic without her hat and gloves, but Enola runs about without a hat or gloves, much to her brother Mycroft’s (Sam Claflin) chagrin.

In another scene, she appears to be in an all-girls school, perhaps finishing school, and isn’t acting how a lady is expected to act. We also see her practicing hand to hand combat in a few clips.

From the mouth of Enola, we learn that her name spelled backward is alone, but she states that she was never alone. Her mother (Bonham Carter) and she were very close and spent much time together. Now, Enola wakes to find her mother gone without a trace. And in pure Holmes form, she sets out, alone, to find out what has happened to her mother.

She meets Lord Tewksbury (Louis Partridge), and they encounter a man on a train, and it seems he is chasing after them. Burn Gorman plays the man, but his character name isn’t yet known.

Overall it looks to be a wildly fun film with many adventures. Be sure to check out Enola Holmes on Netflix on Sept. 23.
