“There are two paths you can take. Yours or the path others choose for you.” This is a quote from Enola Holmes that was released last month on Netflix starring Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes.

In the movie, Enola is on a mission to find her missing mother while working to outwit her famous older brother, Sherlock. She uses sleuthing skills to not only find her mother but also help a lord and possible love interest (played by Louis Partridge) that has run away.

Alayna Mcguire, a junior in the Biomed program, said, “Enola Holmes was a great movie as it was not only intriguing, but I also felt comfortable watching it with my family,” which is an amongst reviewers analyzing the family-oriented movie.

Others at West Tech, such as Kashan Shahid, a sophomore also in the Biomed program, said, “It was good to have something new to watch after a long time with a lack of new entertainment. It wasn’t my favorite movie, but it was definitely interesting and something new.”

Despite having a challenging and uneventful year due to COVID, Enola Holmes is made for family enjoyment and allows a chance to have a break from the day to day lives and unwind. As said by Sherlock himself, “I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.”
