It’s time to raid Barry Manilow’s wardrobe y’all, because John Hughes’ iconic 80s coming-of-age masterpiece THE BREAKFAST CLUB is spending some time in movie-lover detention as a Friday Late Night Movie on September 1.
One of, if not the best “high school” movies ever made stars brat-packers Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald and Judd Nelson as (respectively) a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal who are detained on a Saturday afternoon in the library at Shermer High School. Throughout the course of the day, the group – who all belong to very different “cliques” – talk, dance, eat lunch, talk some more, play with makeup, annoy their principal, talk some more, smoke whatever it is that’s in Johnson’s pants, run through the hallways, share secrets, and find themselves more open, vulnerable, and honest with each other than they have with anyone else they’ve ever met.

We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all. (John Hughes, DCP, 97 mins) | Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought.
