Zach on Film: The Breakfast Club (1985)

by

It’s Saturday detention for Young Zach, but fortunately he has some friends to help him through the day, and when he’s done he may just discover a bit more about himself, and The Breakfast Club.


The Breakfast Club is a 1985 American coming of age comedy-drama film written and directed by John Hughes and starring Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy. The storyline follows five teenagers (each a member of a different high school clique) as they spend a Saturday in detention together and come to realize that they are all deeper than their respective stereotypes.

Critically, it is considered to be one of the greatest high school films of all time, as well as one of Hughes’ most memorable and recognizable works. The media referred to the film’s five stars as members of a group called the “Brat Pack”.
