Putting a fun spin on the traditional Sherlock Holmes story, Netflix's new original film "Enola Holmes" shifts the focus away from the famous detective to shine a spotlight on his younger sister, Enola. The movie is based on the young adult book series written by Nancy Springer. "Enola Holmes" will premiere on September 23 exclusively through Netflix

Millie Bobby Brown ("Stranger Things") stars as Enola, the teenage sister of renowned sleuth Sherlock Holmes. When her mother goes missing, Enola heads on a journey to track her down, and soon uncovers a larger mystery that needs solving. Henry Cavill co-stars as Sherlock Holmes, along with Sam Claflin as Mycroft Holmes and Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Holmes.
