John Hughes made a quartet of films in the 1980s that featured high schoolers. The four films—16 Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off—defined a genre and, in many ways, a generation.
On this Reel Spirituality Podcast series, we’re looking at those films one by one and talking about what makes them great and whether or not they still have relevence today.
We’re taking the films in release order, so next up is The Breakfast Club, the film that both builds up the stereotypes we’ve come to expect in high school movies and complicates them considerably.
