The poster for American Teen, the much hyped documentary due out July 25th that was the toast of Sundance this year, examining the lives of five students at an Indiana high school. To promote the project, they decided to channel John Hughes. Brilliant.

Sigh. I miss the 80s.

Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think you"re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is

a brain...
and an athlete...
and a basket case...
a princess...
and a criminal...

Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours,

The Breakfast Club.
