I am not of the so called “Breakfast Club” generation, having not been a teenager in the 80s. I didn’t grow up with Madonna, Tears For Fears, or The Breakfast Club. The only real connection I have with 80s pop culture is through my older brother. Even after that, I can still identify with the teens from the 80s, specifically the ones portrayed in the film, The Breakfast Club, or any generation for that matter because I was a teen. Perhaps it is that identification that keeps the film in our minds, and is a source of reflection and nostalgia for most people.
Which teenager were you?
It’s the “been there, done that” attitude that remains and leaves the teenager inside of you wondering what could have been different, and the longing to go back to that time.
Me, being a arts and theatre fan (maybe that will give you a sense of what category I fall into), have wondered why a stage version of this film has never been attempted…until now that is.
Detention begins at 10:45 pm on the dot, so don’t be late and take some time to reflect.
Stay tuned for the M&C review coming soon!
