YOUR WEEKLY FINDS
Perhaps one of the most charming family-friendly films Netflix has recently dropped. The movie, which premiered on 23rd Sept., follows the adventures of Enola Holmes - the young sister of famed detective Sherlock. With a mission to find her mother, who disappears on her 16th birthday, leaving her nothing but money and cipher decoder.
The film is based on author Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes book collection, specifically the 2006 debut tome, The Case of the Missing Marquess. Both the movie and the novel follow Enola's exploits as she investigates the disappearance of her mother, Eudoria, while helping a runaway nobleman named Viscount Tewksbury escape looming perils. The end of the film adaptation certainly leaves room for a sequel. It seems as though Enola is just at the start of her true journey, and with five other works in Springer's Enola-centric repertoire, there's plenty of material to pull from.
