August 8 – Labyrinth

Fifteen-year-old Sarah resents her little brother and secretly wishes he would disappear. Her wish comes true when goblins kidnap the boy. To rescue her brother, she must sneak into the castle of the Goblin King, which is in the center of a fantastical labyrinth. But, the task is easier said than done, for the maze is filled with strange creatures and mind-bending puzzles, and nothing is really as it seems. George Lucas produced and Jim Henson directed this gothic fantasy that pits living and breathing actors Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie against a motley collection of Muppet monsters.
