Extra Credit: Labyrinth

Monday, August 26 at 6pm

David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly invite you into a magical universe where nothing is what it seems! Babysitting infant stepbrother Toby on a weekend night isn't young Sarah's (Connelly) idea of fun. Frustrated by his crying, she secretly imagines the Goblins from her favorite book, Labyrinth, carrying Toby away. When her fantasy comes true, a distraught Sarah must enter a maze of illusion to bring Toby back from a kingdom inhabited by mystical creatures and governed by the wicked Goblin King (Bowie).

Labyrinth is the latest film in Extra Credit, a collaboration between Ragtag and the University of Missouri's The Connector. Once a month, we'll screen a film and different researchers will join us to expand on some aspect of a movie.
