Description

The Futurist Social Cinema presents an iconic portrait of 1980's American high school life.

What do you get when you put an athlete, a criminal, a basket case, a princess, a brain together? A hit 80’s classic, The Breakfast Club!

The Breakfast Club was released in 1985 was critically acclaimed, starring members of the Brat Pack. The film was directed by John Hughes, who made many of the classic 80’s films remembered fondly today, including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Pretty in Pink and the hit 90’s film Home Alone.

The film revolves around five high school kids who are forced to spend their Saturday together in detention for a variety of misdemeanours. All the teenagers have very little in common, or so they think and they go on a journey of discovery about themselves and the each other; amongst dancing, harassing each other, telling stories, fighting, smoking, and talking about a variety of subjects; doing anything but the task set by their teacher. They are supervised by Mr Vernon, who is not wholly innocent himself, and embroilers himself in reading personal staff documents only to be caught by the janitor, which leads him on his own journey of epiphany.

What will they discover about each other? What will they admit about themselves? Can they all be friends and stay friend come 4 o’clock? Will they ever finish the written task set by Mr Vernon?!

This coming of age film is perfect nostalgia for adults as well as a familiar representativeness for some teenagers today. The moral of this film is the phase “don’t judge a book by its cover”.
