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.
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.
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 students from the films Freedom Writers and Precious Knowledge are depicted in a negative light. In Freedom Writers, the students are seen as savages by the faculty at Woodrow Wilson Classical High School in Eastside, Long Beach, California. One of the antagonistic teachers, Brian Gellard, speaks of the minority children in a sadistic tone, stating that the children in Erin Gruwell’s class are what has brought the once high-achieving school to the ground. He admits that he does not agree with the integration of the schools and does not think that students who truly wish to learn should be negatively affected by those who do not. Urban schools are represented as having predominantly impoverished, violent, gang related, and minority children.

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’s film The Breakfast Club (1985) resonates with certain modern-day stereotypes of high school students. The film also reflects on how much damage that social status and labels have on people, especially during adolescence. Hughes’s film breaks down the emotional barriers between ordinary high school students of different backgrounds through typecasting. As the actors take on the general roles of students that can be found in most high schools, the narrative of the story begins to drastically change as the characters are revealing their backgrounds with each other. As a result of using this technique, the film reveals the external and internal struggles that most adolescent children deal with in their lives.
Everyone in this film is in his or her own societal bubbles, but come to understand they are all facing the same problems. A princess, a basket case, an athlete, a brain, and a criminal. Five consequently different people with different priorities. This film is an overemphasis of real life and the stresses high school students go through. Looks, grades, and friends separate these students, therefore creating a divide between them before they even have an opportunity to know one another for who they truly are.
