Synopsis: Based on the beloved Edgar-nominated book series, ENOLA HOLMES tells the story of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers. But soon realizing they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s woman can do… she runs away to London to find her. Meeting a cast of memorable characters along the way, Enola’s caught in the middle of a conspiracy that could alter the course of political history. ENOLA HOLMES puts a dynamic new female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family.

The creative filmmaking team includes BAFTA-nominated director of photography Giles Nuttgens (“Hell or High Water,” “Collette”), Oscar-nominated production designer Michael Carlin (“The Duchess,” “Collette”), editor Adam Bosman (Netflix’s “The Crown”), and three-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Consolata Boyle (“Victoria & Abdul,” “Florence Foster Jenkins,” “The Queen”). The music was composed by Daniel Pemberton (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “Yesterday”).
