You mess with the bull, you get the horns! Five very different high school kids connect when they spend their Saturday in school detention lockdown because a Jock, a Beauty, a Brain, a Rebel and a Recluse actually have a lot more in common than you’d think; they’re all messed up and have issues with authority! Directed by the master of the 1980s teenage comedy┬áJohn Hughes’ and taking place during one day, The Breakfast Club really taps into the awkwardness of growing up, with all the sadness and hilarity that entails.
