Whilst flicking through my cable channels at about 2am last night I came across The Breakfast Club. This is one of my favourite films from the mid-80s and it still looked great last night.
There’s one thing that really bothers me about it though. To me the most interesting character in it is the slightly weird girl played by Ally Sheedy. I like far more her than the “all-American” character played by Molly Ringwald. I always think that it’s a real shame that in order for the films resolution to work, Sheedy has to reinvent herself – putting on different makeup so as to become attractive to boys. This seems far too much like a “hollywood” ending for my tastes.
Maybe I just like weird women. Or maybe I just like Ally Sheedy.
