Millie Bobby Brown Praised For “Enola Holmes” By Critics

Fans of Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown are excited as the highly anticipated film Enola Holmes is set to premiere September 23 on Netflix.

USA Today’s review by Brian Truitt praises Brown for her portrayal as the sister of iconic fictional detective Sherlock Holmes.

Millie Bobby Brown lends smarts and charm to the title punch-throwing, clue-finding wild child in a clever if overlong coming-of-age quest that’s all about embracing change instead of stuffy sameness.

Set in 1884, the movie unfurls in an England on the precipice of a new century, with women’s suffrage an important cause and a reform bill on the docket in London that could expand voting rights. At the country estate where she lives, however, Enola isn’t part of that world – she’s homeschooled by her eccentric mother Eudoria (Helena Bonham Carter) in the wonders of jiu jitsu, indoor tennis and reading the entire encyclopedia (and every book in sight).

The review continues:

Enola is definitely her own Holmes, a talented teen who exudes a certain confidence that often gets her into sticky situations. She’s never out of any fight, though, which goes a long way toward explaining her determined personality, and her inner thoughts come through in many humorous and revealing asides to the camera, breaking the fourth wall a la “Fleabag” and giving a freshness to the Holmes brand.
