Mock-up Blast from the Past

Our June movie recommendation:


The Breakfast Club (1985)
Starring: Emilio Estevez, Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy.

Five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason). The disparate group includes rebel John (Judd Nelson), princess Claire (Molly Ringwald), outcast Allison (Ally Sheedy), brainy Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) and Andrew (Emilio Estevez), the jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently -- and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.

This movie was one of my first serious movies growing up even though it does have some pretty funny parts in it. This is a great coming of age movie that shows not everything is all peaches and cream. It deals with the differences between people who eventually become friends in the end. It's a very cool classic.
