Synopsis

You might not have thought that detention could lead to a powerful and often hilarious story of lives being changed in the space of an afternoon - but that's exactly what happens in 80s classic The Breakfast Club. When a bunch of high school kids who would normally have nothing to do with each other are forced to spend their Saturday in detention, will conflicts arise between them? Or will the students realise that while they may seem very different, deep down inside they have plenty in common?

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
