Enola Holmes ★★★★

The plot is a bit shaggy. But no matter. It’s enough of a plot to tie together all the necessary ingredients for an entertaining romp around old England — mystery, some thrilling train scenes, spooky old houses, some carriage rides, villains, fights, and even some fireworks. The heroine is Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes (who knew?). It’s a young-adult mystery-comedy about being yourself and working for progress. But it’s also entirely safe viewing for adults.

The filming budget was generous. The sets and scenery and costumes are lavish. Enola Holmes would be worth watching for the visuals and atmosphere alone. The casting is superb, with Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill) in a supporting role.

Enola Holmes was released last week by Netflix and is available for streaming.
