The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club ★★★★★

This is how you write characters!

John Hughes brings together 5 unlikely highschoolers and puts them in a room together for 8 hours and that's your film. But what he manages to do in the runtime is fill it with character interactions which make you see that people aren't just the stereotypes you put on them and everyone is complex.

This might only be the 2nd or 3rd time I've seen this and I've not watched it in about 2 years but I still remember a lot of it and that's because it's a classic. It achieves everything it sets out to do and more and has a perfect script with fantastic performances.
