Scroll To the Bottom For The Finale
Don't you Forget about... Remember that one hit teen movie that came out in the 80's called "The Breakfast Club?" of course you do, and if you have not seen the film .. you most likely have heard about it. The Film was and still to this day , a Hit, a Movie you can watch over and over and never lose any interest.. It's a movie that leaves an everlasting mark on its viewers because it's so relatable to our own lives. We all can relate to the characters stereotypes, their struggles with their academic achievements, relationships with their parents, and social ranking in a High School society. . Fast forward to NOW and what's going on in our lives in the real world beyond High School, during this World-wide Pandemic, We still can still relate to "The Breakfast Club" , Since the world was stricken by the Infamous "Coronavirus" we are forced to social distance ourselves from others , This Social Struggle " continues many having difficulties adjusting this change in their lives. After rewatching "The Breakfast Club " It to was brought to my attention the similar experiences that the 5 highs schoolers
experienced in the film somehow still relates to what we all are experiencing now during COVID-19 Pandemic...
Stereotype of Social Distancing
This film is a self-contained feature about what happens when people are finally able to look outside their own bubbles and embrace the people on the other side. Like for instance,
Or the times you dread the drive to work and sit through traffic , you begin to miss your job and miss traffic rush hour t it sucked but at least it put some ease to kill time
Those moments you didn't want to get up and even go Probably used your sick hours for laziness rather than actual illness it sucked but at least it put some ease to kill time
If you ever complained how crowded certain venues , events, parks were, and hated big crowds. Now our overcrowded world seems a lil Lonely, and Isolated. . With all the Popular attractions , and concerts postponed /cancelled those crowds seemed to suck a lot less now/ (Truly a 1 or 2 person Mosh Pit is just not the same.)
Even the Parents who had to get their kid up and take them to school , 5 days of the week , we never really understood what the teachers and other members of the faculty went through with teaching and caring for their children till NOW , since schools shut down and students are left at home at home alllllll day in Homeschool.
How valuable all employees are no matter what kind of "basic non expendable ? job they worked , lie the fast food employees, retail grocery, liquor store employees that use to be unappreciated, but Now is known as ESSENTIAL, and couldn't be anymore appreciated
So Claire the princess, John the criminal, Brian the Brain, Allison the Basket case, Andrew the athlete all go to the same H.S. but socially distanced themselves from each other because they hung out in different cliques. They underestimated one another and treated and looked upon each other like they were a (deadly virus). DEADLY to their reputation.
In the letter Brian wrote "we had to sacrifice a Saturday in the day of detention for whatever it is that we did wrong."
Now we have to sacrifice our daily routine/ scheduled lives which doesn't seem all that appealing .....until the Productive , and Time Consuming lives you once upon a time lived , is taken from you. and time goes a lot slower when the Days lead you to literally Nowhere..
The 5 H.S. students are QUARANTINED, and forced into SELF-ISOLATION
WHEN ADVISED TO Social Distancing , That's at a lenient degree of authority unless it's s over the legal capacity of 10 people, but in the case of being under QUARANTINE is more strict. Being around others i unacceptable, it is not just a "you should" stay away from others. it is a "YOU NEED to stay away from others. So these teens needed to stay away from those they would have most likely been their friends being it's a Saturday so the mall , a party ,or whatever main attraction of their weekend calls for , it strictly not going to happen. and most Teens prefer to be at a Library on the weekend. Being at their School Library is a whole other level of TEEN HELL.. so these teens in away can be said to have been exposed to a deadly virus a virus of living a LIE .So they are in need of a day in quarantine with others who are diagnosed with the same type of Sickness. Unbeknownst to any of them that the TLC they needed and would they themselves be giving to others that day would be a cure/
I the beginning upon each characters attending detention you; can automatically see the how they each put themselves in Isolation, they are in isolation because they are in library with few others they do not know, and convinced by their advisors (friends, peers) to isolate themselves from those "types." As Andrew had said to John Bender that "even if he didn't return to school one day it wouldn't even matter to anyone." OUCH" so they stayed at a safe distance of 6 ft and more from where they decided the location they are most comfortable .This is how serious this stereotype thing is to these kids.Imagine them going through this actual Covid-19 Pandemic ...they would all
turn out to be one of those Toilet Paper hoarders.
The Emotional Quaran-teen
The emotional high school teen struggles that each character displayed in just 8 hrs. of detention are similar to what we are emotionally undergoing in the months of Quarantine.
Detention is not meant to be Fun and Neither is Quarantine , with all the long seemingly long hours of the day with no friends around, and no public place to go , You are in a confined space with nothing to do but you can do what these character do to pass time.
Claire , Sits and daydreams and really enjoying her mental harmony a she bites her lip, she confesses in the film that she is a Virgin so it is nothing sexual, but someone else finds her daydreaming a bit arousing.
Brian the Brain is shown trying to work on his assignment describing "who he himself is" and struggling with it , which is odd for a straight A student. His train of thought is distracted by Claire's seductive lip biting, and he becomes aroused. High School Nerd Crushing on a Out of my league" type girl.
Andrew first finds the strings on his hoodie good enough to play with for a while, like as if he is controlling the st/rings back and forth movements with his eyes. He is an Athlete so staying Focus is Primary to being athletic. then tests out his "focus" wam-ups on doing a kick off with a folded piece of paper and his fingers, he obviously got a field goal because he cheered for himself , looked around and saw that it wasn't good enough for others to celebrate, or bother to notice, sohis self joy was immediately put to a halt
Allison The Basket Case is shown Drawing, and she is a terrific artist in a creative yet odd way of displaying performing arts. Hair Dandruff used as snow to make her drawing come alive... Odd but brilliant I must say.
John Bender the Criminal Light up a Cigarette in a Library during detention with his boot that he lit up on fire ... random but rebellious , then what a better way to enjoy a smoke then to include some tunes, Air Guitar Tune
So the random techniques to surpass the time is not entirely abnormal... It's entirely "normal."
The Anger these teens reveal what they have to be angry about and at first when the interactions begins between the characters, it's Harsh. Exchange of name calling , and put downs, sarcasm, there is obviously a few conflicts.
Quarantine can easily frustrate us because well our freedom is taken from us...well these kids first came to detention frustrated , irritated, and taken out their frustrations out on each other. Just like the frustrations out on those we love but stuck with for days and days at a time, it's pretty much inevitable.
ENDING Of BOREFEST KLUB
~OKAY well there is my thesis on the film and the similarities that we had then … and still have now to "THE BREAKFAST CLUB."
Stay tuned to my list of the "clique's" that existed in my H.S. Years …It's about to be revealed...
