54 Beautiful Photos From The Groovy Era – The Breakfast Club were closer than ever after filming in a library all summer

The Breakfast Club was a seminal film for people who grew up in the ’80s, and while it may feel like the members of the club are our close personal friends, the real friendship was forged on the set of the film. The shoot was so easy going that the five cast mates became an incredibly tight knit unit. The film shot in sequence, which means that as the characters grew closer together so did the cast. When the shoot finally came to an end, Ringwald and her cast mates were so torn up that director John Hughes gave each kid a piece of the library’s banister as a keepsake.
