After analyzing the film The Breakfast Club, I have come to the conclusion that this movie initials a lot of reality to the story line from a bunch of teenagers who are all just trying to live life with each character telling their own ways of how they are shown through the school, and how they have become who they are. I have chosen to write about Andrew because I can relate to him with sports and how his parents connect with mine. When we first saw Andrew in the movie having his dad drop him off, his dad said,” Now I did the same stuff you did, but I didn't get caught unlike you.” Now that sentence says a lot in just the first line with how he's treated with discipline. The reason why he got to detention was because he duck tapped
My opinion on the movie I watched, “The Outsiders” is that it was okay. I found some parts boring. There were some parts that was trying to be as emotional as the book and they looked very fake. The director of the movie was Francis Ford Coppola. The author of the book was S.E. Hinton. The Year the movie was made was 1983. The movie was about two gangs. The Socs and the Greasers. Two Greasers (Johnny and Ponyboy). A group of Socs jump them and Johnny is forced to kill one to save his friend from drowning. Johnny and Ponyboy run from the law to a small town named Windrixville. They soon become heros.
The Breakfast Club movie is about five high school students from Shemer High School with different backgrounds. It’s the story of “a brain (Brian), an athlete (Andrew), a basket case (Allison), a princess (Claire) and a criminal (Bender).” The purpose of the movie is to captive the feelings and perspectives on what other people have experienced and learned from each other. The analysis about The Breakfast Club is about the common insecurities and challenges of the teenager during high school. The Breakfast club is a movie to convey emotions, fears, and companionship that everyone can relate to. However, with new knowledge comes new perspective and emotions. This movie opens up a world of abstract thoughts because none of the five students know each other and it helps to create an interpersonal communication, they revealed to each other how their lives actually are. This movie is about Social Judgment Theory, Interpersonal conflict, self-disclosure, Social Comparison Theory and an unresolved life conflicts of a teenager life by finding their identities.
The iconic coming-of-age movie The Breakfast Club, focuses on the development of five, seemingly very different high school students. In the movie we are presented with the five main characters all with stereotypes that they identify with. Claire is the princess or the beauty queen, John, often referred to by his last name “Bender,” is the criminal, Brian is the brain or the nerd, Andrew, is the athlete, a wrestler , and finally Allison is the basket case or the weirdo. The story is set in saturday detention where they are forced to spend eight hours with people from other cliques that they would normally never interact with. The day progresses and the characters interact with one another, smoke, dance, break rules, and reveal very personal parts of themselves with the others. The story ends with some of the characters making an attempt to change their identity with the realization that even with the boxes they have been put into they are not that different from one another.
Two boys, Johnny and Ponyboy, are our valiant heroes. Not even over the age of 18, two boys rescued 5 young children, who were no older than 8-years old. While bystanders watched and worried, only 2 from the crowd had courage to go save the children. They gallantly sprinted in a run as soon they heard children screaming in a burning church. According to our sources, Ponyboy was supposed to be in a boys’ home because his parents died when he was little. Instead of sent to a boys’ home, he was allowed stayed with his older brothers and they are his guardians, and they all stay together as long as they don’t do anything transgressive. A previous hearing at court confirms Ponyboy is not on the borderline of going
Breakfast club is a story of 5 different people who are forced to spend an entire Saturday together learn a little something about each other. The Jock, The Brain, The Basket-case, The Princess, and The Criminal. Brian Johnson (Anthony Michael Hall) is the brain a straight A student who seems like he shouldn't be there, Andrew Clark (Emilio Esteves) who seems like your typical jock who seems like the guy who would end up there every now and then, also you have Allison Reynolds (Ally Sheedy) who seems kind of like your everyday emo person who seems like a person who might end up there more than once a month, then Clair Standish (Molly Ringwald) the princess who looks like the girl who would never
He’s also focused on what people at school would think of him and worries about his popularity status. He’s continuously trying to prove himself to others of his “coolness” to help mask the pressure he experiences from his dad. After reflecting on his decision to prank this other student he realizes the humiliation and pain that this kid had to go through. He thinks about what the kids’ dad had to say having to see their son in such a condition. After thinking about and realizing the effect of his actions, Andrew finds himself regretting doing what his dad might want instead of thinking about the outcome of
Andrew Clark is one of the main characters in Breakfast Club. He was one of the main characters, but he was not the loudest or most talkative one, he only talked when other people talked to him or when someone was doing something they shouldn’t be doing. He was the most mature out of all the actors in the movie, he was a leader and took control if something got out of hand. He was a popular kid in school, he was on the wrestling team, varsity too. When John, another main character, was mean and offensive to people, Andrew would stick up for them. He was the best kid in school out of everyone in the film, he wanted to be as good as he could be and didn’t want to get in trouble and lose a spot on the Wrestling team.
However, he plays into John Bender at first regarding the scene with Bender’s home life. This will be Andrew’s last mistake in stereotyping people. Claire calls him on it too by saying “You shouldn’t have said that.” Andrew is the first of the students to recognize that Brian has name and the first attempt at breaking down the stereotypes. While Bender and Vernon are the antagonists of the film, Andrew I believe is our protagonist or our hero. He stands up for Brian when he asks Brian for his name. He sticks up for Claire when Bender is picking on her. Through Andrew, Hughes shows us that these students are more than just their stereotypes. Hughes’s camera techniques are better at showing depth to the characters, but Andrew is the first to believe that people are more than just their typical stereo types. This is emphasized through the reason that Andrew is in Saturday Detention. The reason he’s there is because he bullied Larry Lester and was caught. We then see the scene evolve into more when Andrew empathizes with Larry. Andrew continues with the fact that Larry has to explain what happened to him that day to his father. It is here we see Andrew breakdown with remorse towards Larry. This comes kind of full circle when Andrew defends Brian against Bender as Andrew doesn’t want to commit the same mistake

The Breakfast Club is a movie about five totally different students in high school who are forced to spend a Saturday in detention in their school library. The students come from completely different social classes which make it very difficult for any of them to get along. They learn more about each other and their problems that each of them have at home and at school. This movie plays their different personality types against each other. In this essay I will go into detail about each of the students and the principal individually.
Two characters that will be examined from the film include Andrew Clark (played Emilio Estevez) and Richard Vernon (portrayed by Paul Gleason). The setting of the film takes place on a Saturday at a suburban Chicago high school. The students are arriving for a special session of detention that will take place all day. In the beginning, everyone is sticking with their traditional stereotypes that were formed from other perceptions (based upon the social group they belonged to). As the day progresses, everybody begins to realize that they are more than these commonly held views. Instead, each person has their own special skills and talents that make them unique. Moreover, all the students and adults are wrestling with similar challenges at
There are five main characters in The Breakfast Club. Claire, played by Molly Ringwald, is the rich snob of the group. She is characterized as being very self-centered and conceited. She is in detention because she skipped classes to go shopping one afternoon. Claire puts on a façade that she has a great familial and social life, but in actuality, she is upset with her family and unsure about her friends. The bully of the group is John (Bender), who is played by actor Judd Nelson. Bender is a person who has a lot of issues with himself, which he masquerades with a tough guy exterior, dry humor and sarcasm. Bender ended up in detention because he set off a fire alarm. Another member of The Breakfast Club is Andrew, played by actor Emilio Estevez. Andrew is the jock of the group and on the surface it seems that he is only concerned with pleasing his father and coaches by winning. In actuality, Andrew has a lot of anger and resentment towards his father, coach and himself, because of the person he is becoming. Because he pulled a cruel prank on a classmate, he has ended up in detention. Allison, played by Ally Sheedy, is the emotional basket case of the group. Though she does not speak for the first half of the film, when she finally does start talking, she does not stop. Throughout her conversations in the movie, Allison is covering up her true self, with the lies and embellishments
The movie, The Breakfast Club, is a movie about five students who get Saturday school and become friends as a result of it. The characters were: Allison, the quiet girl who would sit in the back and refuse to talk; John, the troublemaker who always talked back to the teachers; Claire, the popular girl who always got what she wanted; Brian, the nerdy student who only cared about having good grades; Andrew, the wrestler who was only focused impressing his father. While watching the movie, I mainly related to Brian. He is pressured to have good grades by his parents and is labeled as the nerd because of it. I am also pressured to have good grades; however, I am labeled as the smart kid in many different classes, but I’m not classified as a nerd.
“Oscars So White” a phrase that began trending on social media sites after the 2016 Academy Awards announce their nominees for Best Actor and Best Actress, it was predominately white for a second year in a row. The movie industry is no stranger to controversy and since its inception it’s constantly been guilty of underrepresenting ethnic people. It’s evident that film is a type of mass media that has a certifiable amount of power to influence audience’s views, yet this platform constantly disregards the need for diversity in favor of stereotypes. Movies such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Scarface (1983), and Pan (2015) are all guilty of this. The depiction of non-American characters in Hollywood movies are constructed around racial
Comparing Dennis Lehane 's "Shutter Island" and Martin Scorcese 's adaptation is like comparing a one punch knockout to a 10 round fight. Lehane 's 10 round fights keeps throwing these punches and kicks which gives you details and time to think about what is happening, but Scorcese quickly knocks you out, which is a complete surprise. Lehane gave the characters and the plot too much detail while failing to pose the right question at the end. Just like a ten round fight, it fails to have that strong punch and leave a lasting impact; both of which are important in a psychological thriller.
