Labyrinth is a British-American fantasy film directed by Jim Henson. This gothic fantasy pits living and breathing actors Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie against a motley collection of Muppet monsters. The film centers upon Sarah (Connelly), who lives in a fantasy world of myth and magic, evil spells, and wondrous enchantment. She is baby-sitting her little brother when she cavalierly wishes that goblins would take him away. She gets her wish, and a coterie of goblins abduct him. She then encounters Jareth (David Bowie), the ruler of a mystical world one step removed from reality.
