Enola Holmes has just dropped on Netflix and some fans are already calling for a sequel to the Millie Bobby Brown movie.
It seems viewers have the highest of praise for the Harry Bradbeer-directed flick, which also stars Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes, Sam Claflin as Mycroft Holmes, and Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs Holmes.
And viewers are already in need of more.
‘So how long until they confirm a sequel for enola holmes?’ one fan asked, while another added: ‘Enola holmes lesbian detective icon brought me so much joy tbh i cant wait to rewatch first thing tomorrow morning tbh fingers crossed so hard for a sequel tbh.’
Another more summed up everyone’s feelings by declaring: ‘JUST FINISHED ENOLA HOLMES AND I FEEL EMPTY I WANT THE SEQUEL.’
One of the stand-out elements for many fans was the dynamic between Millie and Louis Partridge, who plays young Lord Tewksbury in the film.
One enthuasiastic fan said on Twitter: ‘WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT LOUIS PARTRIDGE,’ while another asserted: ‘In conclusion viscount tewksbury is the best part of the enola holmes movie.’
However, that’s not to say Henry and Helena were left behind, with one fan sharing stills of the Superman star as Sherlock and saying: ‘I just think that henry cavill in the enola holmes movie’
Good point, well made.
Meanwhile, others were living for Helena and Millie’s mother-daughter relationship, with one enthusiastic viewer urging: ‘Anyway stream enola holmes for the excellence that is helena bc.’
The movie follows the younger Holmes sibling as she wakes up to discover her mother (Helena) has mysteriously disappeared one morning.
She sets off on a mission to find her, becoming a detective in her own right, and out-witting her older brother (Henry) to discover a dangerous conspiracy.
And Millie’s all about the film’s message of female empowerment, as she opened up about playing the young woman.
Chatting away in a video on Netflix’s Film Club YouTube channel, she said: ‘At the beginning of the film, Enola just wants to be loved and looked at as a young woman.
‘And at the end of the film, she accepts that it’s actually way better to be who she truly is.
‘I think that if young women walk away from this film feeling empowered, thinking that they have a seat at the table, that their voices are going to be heard, then I think that’s what the film is all about.’
Enola Holmes is available to stream on Netflix now.
