Enola heads to London in the search of her missing mother – played by Helena Bonham Carter -who has mysteriously disappeared.

However viewers have been left baffled by the 16-year-old's English accent in the film, with many possibly believing she is American thanks to her role and accent as Eleven in Stranger Things.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "MBB's accent in Enola Holmes almost sounds fake after watching Stranger Things."

Another tweeted: "Trying very hard to enjoy Enola Holmes but Millie Bobby Brown's English accent is driving me mad."


A third added: "Enola Holmes review: very wholesome, very lovely, mbb sounds like she’s faking her accent, hbc is a perfect angel and Fiona shaw was a nice surprise :-)."

Meanwhile a fourth wrote: "Thoroughly enjoyed Enola Holmes. Took us a few minutes to recognize Eleven. I think the English accent threw us for a loop.

"She was fantastic. Hope there are some sequels."

While Millie uses an American accent as Eleven in the hit Netflix series, she is actually British and spent some of her childhood living in Bournemouth before moving to Florida.


She now splits her time between London and Atlanta with her family.

Millie stars alongside Henry Cavill, who plays her older brother and famous detective Sherlock Holmes.

The cast also includes Sam Claflin, Fiona Shaw and Frances de la Tour.

Enola Holmes is available on Netflix now.
