The seminal scene in The Breakfast Club occurs when the five students are sitting in a loose circle sharing the truths of their lives.
For the first time in the film, each character exhibits the courage to be vulnerable and truthful with their peers, with themselves. And for that, each character matures and becomes a better person.
There is no action. No car chases. No gun fights. Just five people telling the truth–which sometimes in real life, seems as fictional and improbable as a Hollywood movie.
