AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Ensuring film-lovers won’t forget about them, actresses Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy reminisced about making “The Breakfast Club” at a Texas screening of the fully-restored iconic 1985 film.
A table stacked high with glazed doughnuts greeted attendees to Monday’s screening at the South by Southwest festival. Ringwald and Sheedy conducted a question-and-answer session.
The re-mastered film’s release comes 30 years after the original production. It hits theaters March 26.
The film chronicles five high school students in Saturday detention. Played by Ringwald, Sheedy, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall and Judd Nelson, they aren’t all initially friends, but become close by day’s end.
It also features the Simple Minds hit “Don’t You (Forget About Me).”
Ringwald said the movie’s message, that “we are all outsiders and everyone feels alone,” still rings true.
