'Breakfast Club' Reunion: Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy 30 Years Later

By    |   Tuesday, 17 Mar 2015 02:10 PM

A partial "Breakfast Club" reunion brought together Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy at a South by Southwest film festival screening in Austin, Texas, on Monday, some 30 years after the iconic teen movie.

During a question and answer session at the event, the two actresses talked about the movie’s endurance and their experiences in their roles as “the princess” and “the basket case.”

"The movie has this message that in spite of people's differences, there is something unifying in the experience of growing up and trying to find yourself," Sheedy, 52, said, according to People.



The movie features five high school students with nothing in common becoming friends during a Saturday in detention. Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, and Judd Nelson starred along with Ringwald and Sheedy.

Ringwald, 47, said that after watching the movie with her daughter, she was surprised to learn how her daughter — who was most sympathetic to Hall’s character nicknamed “the brain” — perceived their own relationship, The Associated Press reported.

"She felt that I had too many expectations on her," Ringwald said. "It was this incredible moment where I realized I was the parent."

Ringwald first saw the "Breakfast Club" script when she was working with writer/director John Hughes on “Sixteen Candles."

"It was the best script I ever read," she said. "I loved it. I loved everything about it, every character. I knew immediately I wanted to be involved."

Ringwald and Sheedy both agreed that Hollywood shouldn’t attempt a remake of the movie.

"They should do something that is inspired in some way because when I look back on ‘The Breakfast Club,’ I think it speaks to so many different people but at the same time it's incredibly white," Ringwald said. "I think if there was ever another movie that was inspired by I think it really needs to incorporate racial diversity. Not just racial but all kinds of diversity."

The restored film will be in theaters on March 26 and is available on Blu-ray and DVD. Screenings will include interviews with “Brat Pack” members.

Twitter users cheered the anniversary.
