So harsh! And so true. Even now, if you’re at the right age when you see it, “The Breakfast Club” seems to boil down high school to core truths. Yet decades after its release, we should count ourselves grateful the characters never had a chance to meet again “Before Sunset”-style, and discuss where they are now. Writer-director John Hughes, who based the film on his own years as a student at Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, Ill., died of a heart attack six years ago at 59. In a bit of eerie foreshadowing, Estevez, the jock, peaked in those Brat Pack years; Ringwald, a part-time jazz singer, is still beloved; Sheedy and Nelson have remained somewhat outsiders. Only Hall, the nerd who bulked up and into a character actor (he’s Steve Carell’s fixer in “Foxcatcher”), seems transformed.
