Five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason). The disparate group includes rebel John (Judd Nelson), princess Claire (Molly Ringwald), outcast Allison (Ally Sheedy), brainy Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) and Andrew (Emilio Estevez), the jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently -- and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.
In this episode the guys discuss this John Hughes classic for their #TeenDrama genre. The topics of school detention, character archetypes and stereotypes come up, along with the dated material and how it could be redone if a remake were to occur. Also reliving memories from middle school and high school, the boys go deep with some thoughts of the "fears" the characters in the film have. We hope you wont forget about us and enjoy those #feels!
We are the Reel Feels Podcast, every other Wednesday we'll bring you a new movie with all the feels you can handle. We'll laugh, we'll cry and possibly restrain the frustrations to curse the heavens. But what you can count on is three guys sharing their love of cinema with you.
Please leave us a review and share your "reel" feelings.
