This take on the story, which comes to us from Killing Eve director Harry Bradbeer and His Dark Materials writer Jack Thorne, begins with Enola "waking on her 16th birthday to find her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has vanished. An assortment of gifts have been left behind, but there are no apparent clues to her whereabouts. Now in the care of her two older brothers, who want to ship her off to a finishing school, Enola escapes through London to find her mom."
Bradbeer recently explained why he feels Enola Homes will bring fans a "fresh approach" to the famous literary detective and his highly dysfunctional family.
“There was the fact that there was a sister that people probably hadn’t considered existed. That automatically brings the whole feminist stance and a feminist angle on the Holmes story, which was particularly interesting to me, as Holmes was thought of as being someone who was a little bit of a misogynist.”
What do you guys think? Will you be checking out Enola Holmes this September, or will you need to see a full trailer before making your mind up?
