The story follows 5 teenagers from different social groups who come together when they meet one day during Saturday detention in which time they discover they are not as different as they had previously assumed. Thesis In the Breakfast Club, John Hughes created a realistic and meaningful high school film through an successful combination of music, costume design, theme, setting and quality acting. MUSIC The music used in this film is important for setting the scenes. In this film the musical score creates many of the memorable cinematic moments The music set to the film is relevant to the time of the setting, in the mid-80s as well as to the story, featuring music that lyrically expresses many of the same themes as the film as well as the scene it was incorporated into. THEMES The themes of the Breakfast Club are what make it a great film and one of the best, if not the best, high school movies. The idea of breaking away from the stereotypically cliques and discovering you can relate to people you would never expect to is an encouraging proposal for the films audiences. The themes of sex, drugs, relationships, suicide and friendships are all incredibly widespread ideas in teen culture of any generation and this is why this film has intrigued present generations as well as the past generations and this is why its a memorable film. Setting The setting of the film is more important than in most films, the setting is what makes this story truly plausible The setting of a high school Saturday detention is the way and probably the only way these specific characters could have ever come together http://images.fanpop.com/images/image_uploads/The-Breakfast-Club-the-breakfast-club-541434_604_305.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9-uPGhCyacc/UTgpAwsZfRI/AAAAAAAAA7Q/M_3XBe_a9ac/s1600/the_breakfast_club_2.jpg The setting is what allows them to break away from their normal boundaries and for once interact with someone different, to talk to them, understand and relate to someone new. The story could not happen if the situation wasnt as such. Costume Design Like the music, the costume design stayed in coherence with the time in which the story was set and made it that much more realistic. http://themovierat.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/the-breakfast-club-the-breakfast-club-14129074-1038-946.jpg http://imgc.allpostersimages.com/images/P-473-488-90/54/5489/6FDWG00Z/posters/judd-nelson-the-breakfast-club.jpg The costumes aided the 17 to 26 year old actors (at the time) in portraying high school students in the 80s. Clothing can help to depict the role or the position of the character, whether it be the principal or janitor. http://www.tumblr.com/photo/1280/backgroundartists/445281379/1/tumblr_kz5zedkFdu1qzhiqw http://www.tumblr.com/photo/1280/backgroundartists/445281379/1/tumblr_kz5zedkFdu1qzhiqw Costumes are also beneficial in the way that they can depict exterior characteristics of each personality that the film focuses on, the princess, the athlete, the criminal, the basket case and the brain. http://images2.fanpop.com/images/quiz/95000/95984_1227893469381_185_185.jpg PERFORMANCES Actors, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy and Anthony Michael Hall, members of the infamous Brat Pack, entirely embodied their stereotypical characters. Each of their performances showed true dynamic change through the course of the movie, as their character achieved growth. The performance of each actor was notable. The characters they portrayed came to life in such a realistic way that many audiences are sure to find relatable. Conclusion.... The Breakfast Club stands to be a great film. It has and will continue to last generations as it is a well written, well directed film, that includes great portrayals, costumes, settings, themes and music that make it a realistic and relatable film that anyone can find relation too. http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/14100000/The-Breakfast-Club-the-breakfast-club-14129081-1190-790.jpg http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lhvunldVnT1qbbpaoo1_500.gif http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Film/Pix/pictures/2008/09/25/break460.jpg Work Cited "Casinos in the 80s."
