I felt like watching something light, but perhaps “Enola Holmes” was a bit too much so…
Sherlock Holmes has an older brother and a much younger sister. The father passed away and the brothers moved out of the house, so mother Holmes raises her daughter as an independent freethinker. One night mother disappears.
The brothers return hone to take care of things and Enola uncovers a trail of hints from her mother. She sets out to find her and travels to London following the leads.
Enola is played by the pretty 16-year-old (as Enola is as well) Milly Bobby Brown. Enola tells the story and constantly talks into the camera commenting on what she is doing and thinking. This is somewhat amusing. Also amusing are the animations that are used here and there.
“Enola Holmes” is a family film. Not my usual kind of film.
