Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Let’s talk about some movies featuring amateur sleuths!
#1 The Ruby in the Smoke
I will forever be sad that the BBC only adapted the first two Sally Lockhart books. Billie Piper was wonderful as the titular heroine who ended up solving a bunch of cases!
#2 Enola Holmes
What better pick for this post than Enola Holmes? Sherlock’s little sister is portrayed outstandingly by Millie Bobby Brown and solves the case of the missing Marquess in this film.
#3 Rear Window
Finally, Rear Window. This list just wouldn’t be complete without one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous films. I adore Grace Kelly and she’s a sight for sore eyes in this one. Together with an incapacitated James Stewart she tries to solve what they assume to be the murder of a neighbor.
What’s your favorite film featuring amateur sleuths? Let me know in the comments!
