"Enola Holmes" is a mystery film that premiered on Netflix on September 23.
The movie, which is set in 19th century England, is filled with adventure, trailblazing women, and lessons that remain relevant today.
Luckily for fans of "Enola Holmes," there are plenty of other movies with similar appeal available to stream on Netflix.
Between the stacked cast, fast-paced adventure, and charming feminist protagonist, "Enola Holmes" offers a refreshing new perspective on the Sherlockian world created by Arthur Conan Doyle.
The two-hour film, which is an adaptation of Nancy Springer's young adult book series "The Enola Holmes Mysteries," premiered on Netflix on September 23.
For fans looking to watch more movies like the 19th century period piece, here are 10 films available to stream on Netflix.
"Pride and Prejudice" (2005) is about a fierce young woman in 18th century England that has a mind of her own.
Adapted from Jane Austen's novel of the same title, the film follows Elizabeth Bennet (Keira Knightley) and her sisters as their mother tries to marry them off to wealthy suitors and raise the family's social standing.
Like Enola, Elizabeth is a well-read freethinker in no rush to marry a man or adhere to society's expectations for a woman her age.
And while romance is more front-and-center in "Pride and Prejudice" than it is in "Enola Holmes," the film is also rife with commentary on the period's institutionalized gender inequality.
"Suffragette" (2015) is about the early 20th century women's suffrage movement in the United Kingdom.
If Eudoria Holmes' activism in "Enola Holmes" sparked your interest, the clear follow-up is "Suffragette," a film about the British women fighting for equal rights in the early 20th century.
The activists risked their lives for their beliefs, at times going as far as bombings and hunger strikes to ensure their voices were heard — much like Eudoria did, which makes sense since Helena Bonham Carter plays a vocal feminist in both films.
"Suffragette" is less playful and light than "Enola Holmes," but it certainly hones in on the film's central theme of equal rights.
"Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events" (2004) is a dark adventure about three recently orphaned children.
The three Baudelaire children become orphans after their parents die in a mysterious house fire in "Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events," which is based on the first three books from Daniel Handler's popular book series.
As minors, they're forced to live with their relative, Count Olaf (Jim Carrey). And like Enola, the children are forced to use their unique skills to protect each other from grave situations in the absence of their parents.
"Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events" is anachronistic, rather than a period piece, but the dark, gothic comedy is similar to "Enola Holmes" in its fantastical nature and sheer entertainment value.
"Okja" (2017) is an action-packed adventure about a young girl determined to save her best friend, a giant pig.
"Okja," a story about a South Korean girl that shares a lifelong bond with a genetically modified pig, might not seem like the obvious choice for fans of "Enola Holmes."
However, the films share more similarities than viewers may think.
Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun) is a young girl whose best friend is taken from her, and she sets off on an against-all-odds mission to get her loved one back, just like Enola.
Touching on topics like animal cruelty and corporations' disregard for the environment, "Okja" is also packed with relevant messaging that speaks to all generations.
"Pan's Labryinth" (2006) is a dark adventure that mixes fantasy with reality.
Set in Spain in 1944, years after the Spanish Civil War, 10-year-old Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) takes a journey with her sickly pregnant mother to meet her new stepfather.
Once she arrives, elements of fantasy begin injecting themselves into the story, and Ofelia begins a mysterious quest through the underworld.
"Pan's Labyrinth" is a darker, more violent film than "Enola Holmes," but both movies are about brave female protagonists embarking on missions to protect their family.
"Frida" (2002) is a biographical drama about Frida Kahlo, a groundbreaking woman in art.
Starring Salma Hayek and Alfred Molina, "Frida" tells the story of the late Mexican artist's life.
The film is set in Mexico in the 1920s and highlights the effects that Kahlo's tragic bus accident and unconventional marriage to famed artist Diego Rivera had on her art.
"Frida" isn't a fictional tale like "Enola Holmes." However, it does show the enduring power of a woman that doesn't follow the rules in her art, nor in her personal life.
"Hugo" (2011) is a family-friendly film about an orphan solving a mystery left behind by his late father.
"Hugo," Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Brian Selznick's book "The Invention of Hugo Cabret," is set in Paris in the 1930s.
The titular character is a 12-year-old boy that works on a self-operating machine with his father before he dies in a fire.
When his uncle (and new guardian) goes missing, Hugo secretly moves into the Gare Montparnasse railway station and continues to work on his father's invention, dodging threats along the way.
In a story packed with friendship and adventure, the tough, enduring protagonist in "Hugo" will likely strike a chord with fans of "Enola Holmes," drawing them in for a completely different type of journey.
"Anna Karenina" (2012) is a period piece about the pressure placed on women to serve their husbands.
Set several years before "Enola Holmes" in 19th century Russia, "Anna Karenina" is the story of a woman who falls deeply in love with a man other than her husband.
Adapted from Leo Tolstoy's famous novel, the film highlights the pressure placed on women to conform to society and selflessly serve their husbands, even if it means denying their own desires and happiness. It also shows the consequences for those that ignore the rules, like stigmatization and isolation.
"Anna Karenina" is geared toward an older audience than "Enola Holmes" and is much more romantic, but it does make similar points about the lack of power women had at the time.
"Agatha and the Truth of Murder" (2018) follows famous mystery novelist Agatha Christie as she works on her own real-life murder case.
In 1926, the famous mystery writer Agatha Christie disappeared for 11 days. Writer Tom Dalton created his own version of the story in the film "Agatha and the Truth of Murder."
When Christie (Ruth Bradley) struggles to find creative inspiration for her writing and deals with a crumbling marriage, she accepts a woman's offer to help investigate a real-life murder.
So as the police hunt for any traces of Christie, she's busy with detective work, interrogating potential suspects using methods from her very own books.
Filled with twists and turns and lead by a burgeoning female detective, "Agatha and the Truth of Murder" will surely appease "Enola Holmes" fans.
"What a Girl Wants" (2003) is a light comedy about an outsider entering London's high-society scene.
When American teenager Daphne Reynolds (Amanda Bynes) decides to travel to London to meet her father, she finds out that he's a member of an aristocratic family running to become the country's prime minister.
As free-spirited, humble Daphne tries to fit into her father's world by dressing up in fancy gowns and attending society events, she continuously sticks out and causes a string of scandals that threaten her father's political career.
"What a Girl Wants" isn't a period piece like "Enola Holmes," but it does have a similarly charming, relatable female protagonist that is unapologetically true to herself. It's also a family-friendly, light watch, offering plenty of laughs along the way.
