Labyrinth marks the final feature film of the late great filmmaker, Jim Henson. Filmed just 4 years before his death, it marks the end of a generation of puppet created wizardry that is incredibly loved to this very day. Her love is so much so that her 30th birthday party was a Labyrinth themed costume party, wherein she played a gender bending version of the Goblin King herself. My love is not AS strong as my lovely brides is, but I still have to say that the movie holds a special place in my heart, as I grew up as a young child watching it over and over on VHS and TV. Young Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) finds that her life... Loathing the focus that her baby brother Toby (Toby Froud) gets, Sarah, in all her overly dramatic ways, wishes that the Goblins (characters in a fantasy shes obsessed with) would come and take him away. Only she finds out that maybe, just maybe, she really didnt want him gone. Now the only thing she can do is follow the Goblin King Jareth (David Bowie) back to his world and make her way through the giant Labyrinth surrounding his castle in order to bring Toby back to her world before hes turned into a goblin himself. The only way through the maze happens to be Sarah letting go of her arrogance and pride, and actually trusting a few friends along the way. Meeting up with a grump dwarf named Hoggle (Brian Henson), a thing called Ludo, and a posh British sounding fox named Didymus, she just might make it to the Goblin King himself before its too late. Labyrinth is a delightful fantasy romp that follows the usual Jim Henson pattern of intertwining something more adult with the obviously child audience of the outer trappings of the film. On the surface Labyrinth is nothing but a childrens fantasy, much like Wizard of Oz and the like (well, that and an excuse to have the then incredibly popular David Bowie singing his heart out). However, under the surface we have a coming of age story where Sarah learns about actually growing up. At the beginning Sarah is wildly selfish. Putting her needs above Tobys and self-pitying, she causes this whole mess by summoning the Goblin King. Source: Home Theater Forum and Systems - HomeTheaterShack.com
