On Saturday, March 24, 1984, five vastly different high-school students (wrestler Emilio Estevez, prom queen Molly Ringwald, overachiever Anthony Michael Hall, rebel Judd Nelson and outcast Ally Sheedy) must endure a day-long, in-school detention under the supervision of an arrogant assistant principal (Paul Gleason). Although uncaring and mean-spirited to each other at first, the five teens begin to share their stories as the day drags on. By the end of the day, they realize they have a great deal in common with each other. A classic from the 80s, The Breakfast Club is funny and frank portrait of teens that’s still relevant today.
