You can’t say the phrase “80s teen movie” without almost immediately thinking of—or quoting—the quintessential and genre-defining film “The Breakfast Club.” The movie tapped into the zeitgeist of teenage life so authentically that when it hit theaters in 1985, moviegoers across America connected to the five main characters they saw on screen. One of the most iconic teen films of all time, “The Breakfast Club” has become a cornerstone of 1980s pop culture, featuring rising stars Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez and Judd Nelson, and a script written and directed by John Hughes. The film gave a new voice to teen angst and became part of 80s teen movie canon. This Behind Closed Doors takes an inside look at the development and making of “The Breakfast Club” — from how the script got greenlit, to how the cast came together, to what famous actor was cut loose, to never-before-told stories behind the film’s set design, wardrobe, and chart-topping theme song. In the decades since its release, the legacy of this ground-breaking and influential film continues to grow. Featuring interviews with cast members, producers, cameramen, the casting director and set decorator, The Breakfast Club: Behind Closed Doors deconstructs how it all happened, why the film – and its creator – has had such a lasting impact throughout generations, and what that legacy means now in the age of #metoo.
