Director: John Hughes. USA 1985. 97 mins.
When five very different high-school students are forced to spend a Saturday together in detention, they find themselves interacting with and understanding each other for the first time.
A jock (Emilio Estevez), a criminal (Judd Nelson), a princess (Molly Ringwald), a basket case (Ally Sheedy) and a brain (Anthony Michael Hall) talk about everything, from parental tensions to sex to peer pressure and hurtful stereotypes, while serving time.
Ultimately, the five find that they may have more in common than they ever imagined and learn more about themselves as well as each other. The only question is, will they still speak to each other when they return to classes?
Director and writer John Hughes, along with the stellar cast, makes this a memorable, moving film filled with believable dialogue, intelligent humour, and a generous dose of high jinks. A true teen classic with timeless appeal.
