Detention Span

What do you get when you combine five teenagers from five different walks of life in one room for eight hours 28 years ago? Only the most notable and quintessential high school movie of its time. What do you get when you play that movie at an artfully decorated downtown watering hole? You get a showing of The Breakfast Club at FilmBar in Phoenix.

Director and writer John Hughes' movie spoke to a generation of lost suburbanites struggling to find their identity and self-worth during Saturday detention. The five delinquents struggle with diversity, but eventually form a common bond against blind authority. Throw in cell phones, skinny jeans, and music with wobbly bass instead of synthesizer, and it would fit right into today's generation of post-pubescence.
