The Breakfast Club
[dir: John Hughes, 1985, 93 mins, certificate 15]

They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7 a.m., they had nothing to say, but by 4 p.m. they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be The Breakfast Club.

Join students from MA Film and Television: Research and Production for an immersive screening of John Hughes’ 80s classic featuring live actors and a free continental breakfast buffet!


Presented by MA Film and Television and B:Film: The Birmingham Centre for Film Studies and supported by Flatpack Projects.
