Пятеро школьников в наказание за проступки вынуждены приехать в школу в выходной день и написать сочинение «Кем вы себя представляете?» Молодым людям с большим трудом удается разобраться в своих проблемах…
“When you grow up, your heart dies.” Allison Reynolds (Ally Sheedy) in The Breakfast Club . The Breakfast Club captured the teen angst of a generation, delving into themes such as stereotyping, the stigma of mental illness and bullying.
The movie introduces us to the characters as the stereotypes that each student considers the other: the Nerd (Hall), the Beauty (Ringwald), the Jock (Estevez), the Rebel (Nelson), and the recluse (Sheedy). Also, we are introduced to another stereotype; the mean overbearing teacher.
The Breakfast Club has taught us to own up to these insecurities, to stay bold, and to be proud. It’s very similar to how Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) from Game of Thrones puts it— wear your own preconceived weaknesses like an armor so others can’t use them to hurt you .
Brian is dropped off, will spend almost 9 hours in detention at Shermer High School with four other ‘stereotypes’. The reason is he in detention is because he used the flare gun that was fired in his locker and tried to kill himself because he received his first “F” on a school shop class project.
Poignant, funny and thoroughly relatable, the screenplay presents a touching tale of teen angst which doesn’t seek to patronise or trivialise the teenager’s experiences and still resonates, even if you’ve long left your school days behind. There are great lines dotted throughout the movie: ‘We’re all pretty bizarre.
“The Breakfast Club ” was the nickname for Saturday detentions. The film’s title comes from the nickname invented by students and staff, for detention, at New Trier High School, the school attended by the son of one of John Hughes’ friends.
How much does The Breakfast Club in the United States pay? Average The Breakfast Club hourly pay ranges from approximately $9.45 per hour for Host/Hostess to $14.65 per hour for Cook.
The pot smoked in the film is actually oregano. Each actor took home a piece of the library’s banister as a souvenir from filming.
Even aside from the fact that Bender very explicitly harasses and antagonizes Claire for the entire movie, making the scene where they finally make out seem mildly toxic at best, neither of their character arcs seem to build toward a relationship in any way. I don’t Claire ever interacted with Bender again.
Claire Standish is in detention for skipping school to go shopping. And finally, John Bender is in detention for pulling a fire alarm and fighting with the school’s teachers and students.
He pauses to hide his face in his sleeve before revealing that he received detention because a flare gun went off in his locker because he was going to attempt suicide with it after failing his shop project. Claire later manipulates Brian into writing the paper for all of them.
