Eleven years after Robert Downey Jr. brought back Sherlock Holmes for a new generation, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown does the same thing… kind of. Although Downey’s Sherlock Holmes isn’t connected to the Netflix movie in any way, it’s still a return to a classic world we all know in one way or another. This September, the high-profile movie release will for sure be one of the month’s best new release you won’t want to miss.
Based on the series of books of the same name by Nancy Springer, Enola Holmes stars Millie Bobby Brown as the titular character, who happens to be the teenage sister of storied sleuth Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill). When their mother (Helena Bonham Carter) disappears, Enola embarks on her own investigation and just might solve the mystery before her brother. The film was intended for a theatrical release before the pandemic, but Netflix stepped in to acquire the rights from Warner Bros. On Sept. 23, you can watch Enola Holmes from the comfort of your home(s).
