TBT – The Breakfast Club (1985)

After the disappointment that was One of Us is Lyingย last week, I decided that there was only one thing I could do to revive my faith in teen narratives. I sat down and watched The Breakfast Club. This John Hughes classic has been one of my favourite films forever but […]
