Name that classical connection (9)
UPDATE: Except for Jesse Walker who gave a strong hint on the answer by pushing us towards a link of a Dr. Who episode no one provided an out and out answer on the classical connection of this new movie. It is basically using Theseus and the Minotaur as the basis of this film. I suspect that the creature inside the maze is more robotic than man/bull, but just the same this movie and the popular book series has gone back to mythology for inspiration. How did Theseus find his way out of the Labyrinth? King Minos’ daughter gave him a ball of string. I am determined to find a good myth for a modern telling. Anyone have a good suggestion?
I have not seen the movie yet, and I think the classical connection is pretty heavy. I know the plot already. Anyone want to fill us in on what the basic plot line is? You know it. I know you do! You don’t need to google it. Just watch the trailer and tell me the classical connection. Even if you are moderately read on classical mythology, the ‘basic’ plot line should be obvious. What myth is this from? Anyone? Anyone?
