The Breakfast Club (1985)
Director/Screenplay: John Hughes
A brain, an athlete, a princess, a basketcase and a criminal.
I’ve been thinking a lot about high school lately. I had a reunion a few years back; I didn’t attend it ’cause it was too expensive and formal, but true to form for my class anyway, a few people had similar thoughts and chose to rebel and hold a more impromptu one elsewhere, and out-of-character for me, I attended. So, if some will bare with me a second…. To those who were trying to get me to say it the entire time, yes, I had fun. I’m sorry for seeming so ambivalent before about it, but I find
A House Divided — In the aftermath of Hiram’s (Mark Consuelos) newly announced plans for Riverdale, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) resorts to drastic measures to voice his opposition.

Matthew Ross didn’t waste much time putting his sophomore film in place, after debuting 2016’s Frank & Lola at Sundance (read review) he tapped Keanu Reeves for Siberia, a follow up that appears to once again make different genres into ideal bed partners. Deemed a romantic thriller, production began in April on location in St Petersburg, Russia and Winnipeg, Canada.
Based on a story Stephen Hamel and a screenplay by Scott B. Smith, starring Reeves, Molly Ringwald, Aleks Paunovic, Pasha D. Lychnikoff and Ana Ularu, this follows Lucas (Reeves), an American diamond merchant, who travels to Russia to sell rare blue diamonds of questionable origin. As the deal begins to collapse, he falls into an obsessive relationship with Katya (Ularu), a Russian cafe owner, in a small Siberian town. Ross reteams with cinematographer Eric Koretz and composers Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans.

“The Breakfast Club” revolves around a group of high school students who are nearly strangers, but are stuck together in Saturday detention. The clip shows the preppy Claire and “basket case” Allison in the bathroom as Claire tries to strike up a conversation while Allison washes her hands. Claire makes a comment about Allison’s “out of the ordinary” eating habits like eating chips near a “live toilet” before apologetically offering to talk with her. In response, Allison takes a napkin and daintily retrieves a chip from out of the sink and eats it

Today, the Criterion Collection has released a new definitive edition of the 80s classic, and it features a number of improvements over the previous home video edition, most notably the deleted scenes.
Here are some reviews and links from around the web:
What happens when five strangers end up together in Saturday detention? Badass posturing, gleeful misbehavior, and a potent dose of angst. With this exuberant, disarmingly candid film, writer-director John
On January 2nd, Criterion Collection is a new edition of the film which will contain 50 minutes of material that has never been released. That material will offer lots of cool insights into the film and I'm definitely looking forward to it!
The deleted scene was shared by Vulture, and in it, Claire makes an attempt to do a little bonding with Allison. It's a pretty awkward exchange as Allison's cringe-worthy eating habits are discussed. It eventually leads to Allison picking up a chip out of the bathroom sink and shoving it in her mouth.

The brief scene, which is rather low quality, finds the soon-to-be friends communing in the bathroom — or, rather, Claire unsuccessfully attempting to get Allison to open up to her. “I’m sorry, I don’t want to depress you,” she says after commenting on the fact that Allison is eating in there. “Really, I was just reacting to something I consider a little out of the ordinary. If you’d like to talk, I think I can handle it.
In the new clip from The Breakfast Club, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy are together in the Girls' restroom and Ringwald is trying to become friends with Sheedy, despite her very bizarre tendencies.

In the newly released clip (via Vulture), Ringwald and Sheedy's characters, Claire and Allison, are in the bathroom, where Claire chastises Allison for washing her hands yet eating chips near a toilet. Claire continues to condescend, telling Allison, "Really, I was just reacting to something I consider a little out of the ordinary. If you'd like to talk, I think I could probably handle it.

“I mean, God, I think Neve [Campbell] would be really interesting,” Ulrich, who plays Jughead’s dad F.P. Jones on The CW’s teen drama, told TVLine when asked who he’d cast as Jughead’s still-unseen mother.
