Into the Labyrinth..

Every person has a favourite childhood movie. One that seems to resonate in a collective 'I loooooved that movie!' from children of the eighties and nineties is 'Labyrinth'.
What young adult can forget the tale of Sarah (played wonderfully by Jennifer Connelly) whom wishes her little brother Toby away. Little does she know that the Goblin King Jareth (David Bowie - in tights!) hears her wish and grants it. Toby disappears, and Sarah must embark on a long journey through the labyrinth to the goblin castle at the centre in order to save her brother. Along the way she encounters goblins, fairies, moving walls, never-ending passageways, a giant furry creature named Ludo and a little worm wearing a scarf.

The world needs more of David Bowie in tights.
