Jim Henson’s slightly darker Muppets star in the one of the most magical adventure films of, well, ever made. Jennifer Connelly is Sarah, a fifteen year old who resents her little brother so much that she wishes him to just disappear which he actually does when evil goblins kidnap him. Feeling guilty, she sets out to rescue him from the Goblin King (David Bowie!) but first she must successfully navigate a fantastical labyrinth in the center of this other-world full of puzzles and strange creatures. Seeing Labyrinth is a right of passage for any young adult and ripe for a revisit.
