Like so many child-prodigy narratives, Home Before Dark finds it most expedient to have Hilde act, think, and talk more or less like a miniature adult (albeit with a kid’s stringent sense of right and wrong). Even a child actor as good as Brooklynn Prince can seem stilted and smarmy when handed self-consciously elevated child-genius dialogue.

“Home Before Dark” has a strong duo in Prince and Sturgess, who squeeze their every scene together for all the emotional juice it’s worth...

As anyone knows if they experienced The Florida Project with Prince as their guide, she’s a compulsively watchable actor. She plays the fanciful premise (“What if Veronica Mars, but tinier?”) with such utter conviction that Home Before Dark is appealing in spite of its flaws.

Boasting excellent writing across its first five episodes, the series creates a sense of stakes that are greater, and even more enticing, than its two big whodunits.
