Fathom Events, celebrates the movie's anniversary with a big-screen showing and a few new details about the movie and what happened after.
Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) is a 15-year-old girl with a rich fantasy life -- and some pretty typical teenage melodrama. She's not happy that her fantasy playing is cut short so her father and "wicked" stepmother can go out and Sarah can babysit her baby brother Toby. And when Toby won't stop crying, Sarah tells her a story about goblins that ends with her wishing the goblins would take him away.
Unfortunately, Sarah's wish is a spell of sorts, and she's immediately visited by Jareth the Goblin King (David Bowie), who comes to take Toby away and turn him into a goblin. When Sarah protests, Jareth makes her a deal: She had thirteen hours to traverse his labyrinth and find Toby at his castle. If she does, she gets Toby back; if not, Toby becomes another goblin minion of Jareth.
