Each one of the characters represents the clique that they come from whether that be the jocks or the burnouts. All of the students are within high school range and look at each other as if there were not even from the same species. The films disruption is these students must do an all day detention on Saturday. They are taken out of their normal lives where they might be sleeping in on a Saturday and thinking about doing something with their friends. It takes them to a familiar setting they spend five days a week in and makes the characters spend time with others they would almost never spend time with.
In the movie, The Breakfast Club, five high school students spend their Saturday detention together. The popular girl Claire Standish, the athlete Andrew Clark, the nerd Brian Johnson, the outcast Allison Reynolds, and the rebellious delinquent John Bender must put aside their differences to survive their detention with their assistant principal, Mr. Vernon. While in detention, they are told to write about “who they really are” in one thousand words. Throughout the day, they reveal their struggles involving their cliques and their home lives. As the movie progresses, the audience finds out the reason each teen is in detention which brings up a discussion about who they really are.
COMMUNICATION THEORY INDIVIDUAL TASK: MOVIE REVIEW -THE BREAKFAST CLUB- Synopsis Claire Standish “The Princess”; Brian Johnson “The Brain”; Andrew Clark “The Athlete”; John Bender “The Criminal” and Allison Reynolds “The Basket Case” were shown entering fictional Shermer High School on a Saturday for detention. During their eight-hour detention period, the students were not allowed to do anything besides describing themselves in a 1000 words essay as assigned by Mr. Vernon, the school’s disciplinary principal. While Mr. Vernon was away, John unscrewed the door of the library which made it impossible for him to supervise from his office. The students could then tease, sleep and even argue. They planned to ditch detention after lunch time but failed.
John Hughes’ 1985 movie, The Breakfast Club, offers uncountable examples of the ideologies of interpersonal communication. Five high school students: Allison, the kook, Brian, the brain, John, the criminal, Claire, the princess, and Andrew, the jock, are required to devote the day in Saturday detention. At the end of the day, they discover that they have more in mutual than they ever grasped. I will begin by choosing a scene from the movie and using it to explain what interpersonal communication is. The interpersonal transaction I chose to isolate was the scene where we see Bender and Claire going through each other’s wallet and purse.
"The Breakfast Club" is a coming of age film directed by John Hughes in 1985, where five very different adolescent students are assigned to Saturday detention, where they figure out that each of them fits a particular stereotype, they all have the same characteristics but through their own experiences they become who they are today. In this movie Claire Standish is the princess, Alison Reynolds is the freak, John Bender is the criminal, Brian Johnson is the nerd and Andrew Clarke is the jock. At first no one’s knows each other, nor do they want to, but slowly through experience they have together they slowly have to get to know one another.

He is bullied and blind sighted by a boy who was supposed to be his best friend. He sits at the lunch table alone and feels everyday that is just wants to be normal. In the end, Auggie was able to show his classmates and teachers what it means to be kind and everyone loves him. This movie shows resiliency because Auggie has to over come many challenges that all middle-schoolers face and the added complications that his facial deformities presented. Besides all these problems Auggie was able to preserve with the help of his family and imagination.
I chose The Breakfast Club because it is a classic movie that I never get tired of. This movie deals with five students in high school who are all in a Saturday detention. The faculty member is cruel to them and they just try to have fun while serving detention for eight hours on a Saturday. They do not know each other, but by the time detention is over, they all leave knowing that they are not like their parents. This movie has six main characters, all of who are either in high school or teach in school.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the book I read in the summer of 2014, has an everlasting influence on my life as it talked about Charlie Kelmeckis, the first year high school student as the strange kid who spent his summer in mental institution, and Patrick, the senior student who over time attempted to help out the younger students. Charlie was the main character that represents the harsh reality of high school and how people we know aren’t truly themselves around us. Charlie wrote these so-called letters to his friend in hopes of finding a way to release all his anger, depression, and grief thrown into him from the world falling apart in front of his eyes. Since he persevered through his difficult time, this character also helped me tackled the monsters that ran the circus in my
