The Stranger Things star plays the titular Enola Holmes, younger sister to the relatively more well-known Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin) Holmes. The upcoming Netflix movie — which the streamer acquired from Legendary Entertainment earlier this year.
The poster for Enola Holmes promises an epic mystery for the youngest member of the Holmes family. Brown takes center stage on the poster as Enola Holmes, the teenager sister of Sherlock and Mycroft tasked with locating the whereabouts of their missing mother. With two older brothers like Sherlock and Mycroft, there should be no doubt in our minds Enola is more than game to figure this mystery out.

England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change. On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history. Based on the beloved book series by Nancy Springer, Enola Holmes is a dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world’s greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister. The game is afoot.
