The Synopsis for St. Elmo's Fire (1985) 720p

Seven friends - Alec, Billy, Jules, Kevin, Kirby, Leslie and Wendy - are trying to navigate through life and their friendships following college graduation. Alec, who aspires to political life, has just shown his true colors by changing his allegiance from Democrat to Republican, which freaks out girlfriend Leslie, who he wants to marry. Budding architect Leslie, on the other hand, has an independent streak. She believes she has to make a name for herself to find out who she is before she can truly commit to another person in marriage. But Leslie and Alec have decided to live together. Because Leslie refuses to marry Alec, he believes that justifies certain behavior. Kirby, who wants to become a lawyer and who pays for his schooling by working as a waiter at their local hangout called St. Elmo's Bar, and struggling writer Kevin are currently roommates. They are on opposite extremes of the romance spectrum. Kirby has just reconnected with Dale Biberman, a slightly older woman he knew ...

The Reviews for St. Elmo's Fire (1985) 720p

Pretentious rubbish.Reviewed bylopez568Vote: 7/10

St. Elmo's Fire has no bearing on life after university at all (for the majority of us common folk anyway). Why was this garbage even made? Who can really relate to this? Who lives like these characters? I truly feel sorry for the actors having to deal with such a terrible script. There are some talented young actors in this "film" that have done a good job elsewhere. It must have just been one whole joke to them on set.

I actually found this "film" insulting to my intelligence. The only joy I got from this is hoping that Sir John Hughes had a good ol' laugh when he saw a screening of this the same year his masterpiece of The Breakfast Club was released.

Don't make the same mistake I did of watching this because you enjoy 80's films. It really is that offensive to the genre.

When I first saw this film I was about 14. I loved it back then becausethere were so many cool actors in it. That is why, nothing more and nothingless. But now, as I am a young adult perhaps going through some of the samescenarios and fears and insecurities that these people are in the movie, Ican appreciate it a whole lot more. Not only is it a film that has anincredible young cast in it, but it is a film that does a great job ofdealing with a plethora of issues. My favourite character was Billy, theRob Lowe character. Sometimes his intentions weren't always spelled out forus, but there are subleties about the way he plays his character that reallyhit home. You can tell that he misses the easier days of college. The dayswhere all he had to do was play sports and smoke up a bit. But now he is inreal life and he can't quite seem to find his niche. He is still the goodlooking playboy that can get laid whenever he feels like it, but as fordealing with real life issues, he is confused and scared. And he masks thatinsecurity by being a playboy. It's a great character study. Many of theother characters in the film have interesting stories as well. None of themhave quite figured out what the meaning of life is yet and all of them arekind of living on the edge. All are attempting to get by with what theyhave, but what it ultimately comes down to is that none of them really knowsthe answers. Maybe some have become more successful than others but deepdown they are all scared of life. Now I don't know about other mid 20'speople, but I can sure relate to what they are feeling and going through. And this movie made me feel like I am not the only one that may not have allthe answers. If this is a film that you haven't seen in a few years, watchit. Admire what it wants to say. Take it for what it is. I really enjoyedwhat this film was about. And it made me feel a bit better about life,after all, we're all going through St. Elmo's Fire.

I think Joel Schumacher gets a bad rap. Sure Batman & Robin is possiblythe worst movie ever made, and it did kill a multi-million dollarfranchise, but is that truly all we think about on the mention of hisname? I myself will admit to keeping a stigma of hack wheneverSchumacher is talked about, however, along with some decent films oflate, his track record in the 80's was full of pure, nostalgic gems. Ifinally got the opportunity to check out one of my mother's favoritefilms, St. Elmo's Fire. Made at the height of Brat Pack fame, this filmreally gets the angst of college graduation and the life ofresponsibility and work that waits in the future right. While not asquotable or memorable as say The Breakfast Club, Schumacher still isable to take a moment in the youth of society and make somethingmeaningful out of it. Maybe I can relate to it having just graduatedfrom college two years ago, but I think that it would be relevant lateron as well. Even if not, it is an accomplishment to last over twentyyears and still be relatable to someone in that same position in thepresent day.

So the film is chock full of stereotypes and clichés, does that make itnot true? We have our striver for fame and notoriety at the expense ofhis ideals, the girlfriend who wants to make a career before settlingdown as a stay at home mother, the troubled artist who can't leaveschool behind for a real life, the self-obsessed flirt who would ratherself-destruct than ruin the façade she has worked so hard to build, thelove-struck indecisive one stalking a past love and changing himself totry and win her over, and the confused souls not quite sure what theywant to do with their new independence. We have the drug use, thesleeping around, the comradery, and the heartbreak. Through it all,though, you can really buy into it and see moments in your own lifethat mirror the events on screen almost perfectly. I think a lot ofthis has to do with the times and the ability to use actors that areactually the age of the characters they are playing. This is a filmabout 23 year olds trying to find themselves, and the authenticity ofhaving people that age, going through those things in their real lives,helps the performances to be truthful. Nowadays this would have beenchanged to a post- high school story with the 18 year olds played byactors 25 or older. It's the vulnerability and the childlike appearancethat makes you buy into the story and want to follow it to the end tosee if the friendships can remain intact.

The star-filled cast does a great job throughout, and a film like thismakes you wonder where these guys have gone. An actress like AllySheedy, who had the talent and the looks, pretty much fell off the maponce the 80's came to a close. It is her and Andrew McCarthy thatreally carry the film. He is another that disappeared after Weekend atBernie's. It is always nice to see this troupe of acting talent andwhat they were capable of in their prime. Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore,and Judd Nelson are all pitch-perfect in their roles along with MareWinningham playing the friend that is so totally different fromeveryone else in the group, yet believable because we all have a friendlike that. The only weak spot, in my opinion, is Rob Lowe, who at manytimes seems a bit out of his element as the drunk, party guy crackingjokes and getting into trouble. I don't discount his performancestotally, though, because when he has moments of clarity, like when hetalks Moore down after her total collapse, he is really excellent.

Everyone goes through a moment of time in his/her life like thecharacters on screen in St. Elmo's Fire. Schumacher should be givencredit for giving us a poignant study into the lives of those souls onthe cusp of a new chapter in life and the decisions that need to bemade to continue forward without regrets for what is left behind. Thedialogue is realistic and it all ends in a conclusion that makes sensein the scheme of the character's evolutions. Your friends will alwaysbe there for you, through thick and thin, however, as you grow older,the roles each play in your life changes. Getting older doesn't meansevering ties to the past, but instead a restructuring of it to keepyou strong and moving towards the future.
