“When you grow up, your heart dies” – Breakfast Club (1985) directed by John Hughes

I’ve always found it difficult to understand someone like John Hughes who has dedicated his whole life’s work on how it’s like being an adolescent. But I see now why the poetry of an adolescent can be compelling with how raw it is and how uncensored it is. There is only an eagerness to express oneself and a lack of experience that comes with it and that results with a kind of truth not found anywhere else.
