Which one of the kids in The Breakfast Club (1985, rated R, 97 minutes) is most like you? Claire (Molly Ringwald), John (Judd Nelson), Andrew (Emilio Estevez), Allison (Ally Sheedy), or Brian (Anthony Hall)?
These are children whose lives you wouldn’t wish on your grandchildren. Their Saturday detention for various student wrongdoings is a hell-fired playground for growing up and facing truths and learning about the wonderful unknowns of human kindness.
In one brief day they grow and change and assert their special personalities. They become better people.
The Breakfast Club is funny, it’s sad, and only the kids think there are mysteries. It becomes a feel good movie.
