WATCH: Enola Holmes official trailer

Enola HolmesNetflix has released the full trailer for Enola Holmes, the upcoming period adventure starring Millie Bobby Brown as the titular character.

As previously reported, Henry Cavill stars as Sherlock Holmes, Sam Claflin as Mycroft Holmes, and Helena Bonham-Carter as their missing mother. The rest of the cast includes Adeel Akhtar, Fiona Shaw, Frances de la Tour, Louis Partridge, Burn Gorman, and Susan Wokoma.

The trailer introduces us to the intrepid heroine as well as shows her close relationship with her mother, who teaches her to be clever and resourceful as she pursues her own path in life. The film will clearly be very different from the usual Sherlock Holmes adaptations, not least because it stars a female lead who is just as capable (if not more so) than her brother. But there are also some brief scenes of Cavill as Sherlock clearly admiring his younger sister’s ingenuity.

Here is the official synopsis:

“England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change. On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history. Based on the beloved book series by Nancy Springer, Enola Holmes is a dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world’s greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister. The game is afoot.”
