‘The Breakfast Club’ Movie Summary
On Saturday March 24, 1984, five high school students in a Chicago suburb arrive for an all-day detention. They are five total strangers, with nothing in common; meeting for the first time—a brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel, and a recluse. Before the day is over, they will break the rules, bare their souls, and touch each other in a way they never dreamed possible.
Brian Johnson is the geek. Andrew Clark is the jock. Allison Reynolds is the 80s alternative girl. Claire Standish is super popular, and John Bender is the juvenile delinquent.
They head to the school’s library where Assistant Principal Richard Vernon tells them they are not allowed to talk, leave their seats, or sleep until they leave at 4:00pm. He assigns them a 1000 word essay telling him who exactly they think they are. He then leaves them, and only comes back in for lunch, or when he hears a ruckus…and he will hear a ruckus with these kids.read full summary
