Enola Holmes

Director: Harry Bradbeer
Year Released: 2020
Rating: 1.0

Enola (Millie Bobby Brown), sister of Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), goes out looking for her mother Eudoria (Helena Bonham Carter) who ran off mysteriously (leaving a few clues as to her whereabouts) and ends up running into - and saving the life of - Viscount Tewkesbury (Louis Partridge), whose family wants him dead.  Bradbeer tries to emulate the Guy Ritchie-lensed Sherlock Holmes movies style-wise and has Enola break the fourth wall by speaking to the audience, but there isn't a whole lot of detective work to be done (ooh, scrambled words) and much of what is there doesn't make much sense: it's trading in "deductive logic" for frankly tired statements about girl power, believing in yourself, etc.  Brown is quite magnetic as the lead, however, and anyone that's watched Stranger Things and is only familiar with her as the protective Eleven should see that she has quite a bit of range.
