Sealed in manufacturer's shrinkwrap~Fast shipping. This children's fantasy is dominated by great production values, wonderful puppets and gorgeous visuals. Sarah (Jennifer
Connelly) is left at home to babysit for her little brother Toby. Since he is fussing and crying, she decides to read him a story and before she knows it, the Goblin King (David Bowie) appears and spirits off little Toby to his castle protected by a labyrinth. If Sarah does not want Toby to turn into another goblin, she must make her way through the maze and rescue him before the clock strikes 12. A campy '80s fantasy, Labyrinth brings together some of the leaders in the genre to assemble a popular adventure tale. While executive produced by George Lucas, director Jim Henson provides his inventive Muppets, and former Monty Python member Terry Jones crafts witty and inventive side bits in the screenplay to color the standard formula. The special effects, makeup, and creatures are top-notch, all created before CGI technology, thus marking an end of an era for live-action fantasy films. Jennifer Connelly serves her purpose as the inventive dreamer for the Alice in Wonderland- or Wizard of Oz-style journey. The actor most notable is David Bowie as the villain Jareth, who gives a nod to his former alter ego Ziggy Stardust. He is quite possibly the high point of the film, contributing to songwriting and creating an alluring figure in Jareth that rightfully could be borne of a young girl's imagination.
