Starring: David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly
LABYRINTH is a modern-day Alice in Wonderland that pits a teen (Connelly) against the Goblin King (a perfectly cast David Bowie) in an attempt to rescue her kidnapped baby brother. Full of Jim Henson’s typically imaginative creature design, the film’s eye-popping sets, including the M.C. Escher inspired castle, create a wholly believable world existing just behind the facade of reality.
