‘The Breakfast Club’ revisited

There’s a fascinating essay in The New Yorker by Molly Ringwald, who looks back at one of her most famous movies, “The Breakfast Club.” If you were expecting a fond jaunt down memory lane, remember, we are now in the age of #metoo, and things that were once seen as charming are now understood as creepy.

And after you read that, listen to Act Three of this episode of “This American Life,” in which Molly discusses watching “The Breakfast Club” with her 10-year-old daughter.
