As the laws of time dictate, some people are teenagers now, some individuals were teenagers long ago, and most of us still feel like teenagers, at least every now and again. Maybe that's what makes The Breakfast Club so special. Sure, in some ways, it's a time capsule of suburban high school in the 1980s, but it's also so much more than that. John Hughes' film endures over time -- even among people who were born long after the 30-year-old film was made -- because sometimes we all feel like, and are, the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess (or prince) and the criminal. The Breakfast Club is shown at 8 p.m. tonight at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; 314-241-2337 or www.schlafly.com) as part of the Webster Film Series' Strange Brew program. Admission is $5.
Wed., July 1, 8 p.m., 2015
