Yes, thanks to Netflix. It was very, very good and deserving of much more attention that it got. I especially enjoyed how it maintains one's interest without giving too much away; for a good long while, it's hard to tell whether we must take the story as a straightforward fantasy tale or as a psychological allegory.
It's the flipside of the coin of 80s fantasy movies like Labyrinth; grimmer, more real, more psychological, but still with that wonderful contrast of of the everyday and the magical. The lead actress Madison Wolf gives a performance way beyond her years.
