Action/Adventure: Using all of the wisdom and skills she learned growing up during the late 1800s and sharing her famous brother's sleuthing abilities, a sixteen-year-old sets out to find her missing mother while also helping save a runaway nobleman.

It's 1900 and Enola Holmes (MILLIE BOBBY BROWN) has just turned sixteen. With her older brothers Sherlock (HENRY CAVILL) and Mycroft (SAM CLAFLIN) having left home not long after their father's death when Enola was very young, the teen has been raised by her mother, Eudoria (HELENA BONHAM CARTER), not to fit into the norms of British society but instead to be a young woman who's independent, smart, caring, curious and capable of defending herself.

But then one day her mother simply vanishes, and with her brothers showing up to check on things, the stuffy Mycroft views Enola as wild and unrefined. And now that she's his ward, he orders that she be sent off to Miss Harrison (FIONA SHAW) and her refining school for young women to learn how to be a proper future wife and mother. Enola wants no part of that, and having similar sleuthing abilities like Sherlock, she escapes and sets off for London to try to find her mom.

On the train there, she meets Viscount Tewkesbury (LOUIS PARTRIDGE), the Marquess of Basilwether, who's similarly running away from home and the life that his mother, uncle, and his grandmother, The Dowager (FRANCES DE LA TOUR), want for him. Enola wants no part of dealing with that, but ends up saving him from Linthorn (BURN GORMAN), a man initially believed to be there just to return the young man but instead is out to murder him.

Going their separate ways once in London, Enola begins her search and meets one of her mom's associates, Edith (SUSAN WOKOMA), and must not only elude Inspector Lestrade (ADEEL AKHTAR) from Scotland Yard who Mycroft has hired to find her, but also a violent encounter with Linthorn. Realizing she must now find and rescue Tewkesbury while still searching for her mom, Enola puts to use all of the training and smarts her mother instilled in her.

I imagine young girls will be quite interested in this.
For some violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
