 Book Vs Movie: Enola Holmes by Nancy Springer

The 2006 Novel Vs the 2020 Millie Bobby Brown Movie

The Margos feel the love of mystery and the thrill of self-reliance with the lively Enola Holmes as our main character. The teenage younger sister of brothers Mycroft and Sherlock.  Both are brilliant and confounded by their sister’s pluckiness and determination. 

When we first meet Enola,  we meet her mother Eudoria who wants her daughter to be independent and clever. When she goes missing, Enola travels to London to find out what happened to her. 

There are quite a few BIG differences between the novel (Enola Holmes: The Case of the Missing Marquees. Author Nancy Springer wrote several books throughout her long career and has been nominated for the Edgar Award several times for her work. 

The movie, directed by  Harry Bradbear (Fleabag) and starring Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes (a brilliant casting decision!) also features Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, Helena Bonham Carter and, Louis Partridge. It’s a delightful production and we had so much fun delving into this world. 

Listen to this episode to hear us talk about the book & movie and decide which we like better. 

In this ep the Margos discuss:

  • The life story of the author Nancy Springer
  • The multiple “Sherlock Holmes” iterations over the years and the strange lawsuit against this film  
  • Why “breaking the fourth wall” is important to tell the story about our lead. 
  • The cast: Millie Bobbie Brown (Enola Holmes,) Henry Cavill (Sherlock Holmes,) Sam Claflin (Mycroft Holmes,) Helena Bonham Carter (Eudoria Holmes,) Louis Partridge (Tewkesbury,) and Fiona Shaw (Miss Harrison.)
