St. Elmo's Fire (1985)

GremlinsOn June 22nd, 2020, we lost acclaimed director, writer, and producer Joel Schumacher. Thus, for this pairing, we're going to pay a tribute by focusing on two films from Schumacher, starting with Episode 212 and his 3rd cinematic offering, 1985's "St. Elmo's Fire." The story follows seven college friends, Kirby Keger (Emilio Esteves), Billy Hicks (Rob Lowe), Keven Dolenz (Andrew McCarthy), Jules (Demi Moore), Alec Newbary (Judd Nelson), Leslie Hunter (Ally Sheedy), and Wendy Beamish (Mare Winningham) just after they've graduated from college. The story revolves around the gradual dissolution of the ties that bound them together at college as they begin to navigate the adult "real world" and realize that things are not going to stay the same as when they were still in schoo. This was the film to feature the largest number of the "Brat Pack" of the 80s, missing only Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald, and also started the career of Andie MacDowell, who play's Kirby's object of obsession. A film to watch with your mid-20s in mind, or if you're IN or near your mid-20s!
