TYMNHS: Enola Holmes (2020)

In this edition of Things You Might Not Have Seen, it is my pleasure to talk about the movie Enola Holmes. The movie is based on the book series by Nancy Springer of the same name.

It is rare to come a across a movie where nearly all the characters are likable.

Viscount Tewkesbury of Basilwether

Adorable nincompoop ✔

The Bowler hat villain

Persistent ✔

Sinister ✔

The real nemesis

Predictable ✔

The plot of the movie was predictable, even if unbelievable at times. A sixteen year old surviving so long in London with that much money on hand? Especially, after revealing the $$$ to the clothes seller, for instance? 😆

The main characters themselves made it a good movie to watch. Although, some of the side characters were as one dimensional as the caricatures that Enola drew.

Enola was plausible as a Holmes sister. To her credit, she made jujitsu look easy in a steel-framed corset plus hip enhancers 🤭👗

I loved the dynamics between Tewkesbury and Enola 💕 That is where the magic of the film happens.

I hear that there could be a sequel? I will watch it to see more of Tewkesbury-Enola and ofcourse, for a more lively (still dashing) Sherlocks 😉

I hope that you liked this blog post and discovered something new today. Thank you for reading!
