Falling into adulthood


The Breakfast club

In this 1985 drama written and directed by John Hughes, five high school students meet in detention with nothing in common. The brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, and the criminal each embody a different stereotype. As the movie develops, the students bare their soul and each shares their inner struggles which stem from difficult relationships with friends and family. Despite their obvious differences, the students bond over the desire to be understood and by the end of the film become friends. The Breakfast Club is considered the “quintessential” 80s film and has been named on lists of the greatest films of all time by Empire magazine and The New York Times.
