Synopsis : This truly is the best of the 80s and the best of John Hughes. The three films all perfectly capture the feelings and emotions of youth in three different ways. From the isolation of being an outsider in The Breakfast Club, where five strangers become firm friends for one day during school detention. Then 16 Candles which deals with a first crush at the tender age of 16 and the frustration of having an older sibling who is the centre of your parents world. Finally Weird Science, and the fantasy of every unpopular teenage boy, being able to create your own woman who will do whatever you want.
What John Hughes manages to do with each of these films is bring a perfect mix of humour and heart to the story and keep the story interesting and original. He is a director that spoke to the youth of a generation like no one else before or since and this is some of his best work.
