Review: Enola Holmes is bold, intrepid and wildly entertaining

Here's another Netflix film I so desperately want to see on the big screen.

This is Enola Holmes.

The casting of Stranger Things break-out Millie Bobby Brown as the bold, intrepid and wildly entertaining Enola Holmes is just one of the reasons to watchlist this romp.

Fleabag fans will see some of its DNA here as the same director - Harry Bradbeer - adapts the book series. He injects the story of Sherlock's younger sister and her hunt for their missing mother with pace, adventure and humour, throwing in Superman star Henry Cavill as Sherlock and including the unpleasant elder sibling Mycroft.

From her unusual upbringing in the countryside with her mother at the helm on to finishing school and her many lucky escapes, this story rollocks along with fierce femmes front and centre and crikey that feels good.

If this doesn't kick start an Enola Holmes franchise I will be very very grumpy. Millie Bobby Brown is so great - balancing her conspiratorial chats to camera with her spirited on-screen antics with flamboyant flair - I loved it all. 

Four-and-a-half stars.
