"Dance, magic dance!" Jim Henson's visionary fairy tale, the last feature film he would direct, now enjoys a devoted cult following among viewers who grew up on it. Resentful of having to babysit her brother Toby, teenager Jennifer Connelly inadvertently casts him into the hands of Jareth the Goblin King, played with haughty relish by rock icon David Bowie. To rescue Toby before he is permanently transformed into a goblin, Connelly must navigate the many obstacles — and dangerous puppetry — of the Goblin King's labyrinth. DIR/SCR Jim Henson; SCR Dennis Lee, Terry Jones; PROD Eric Rattray. UK/U.S., 1986, color, 101 min. RATED PG
