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 ...

Lurid fun.Reviewed byjane-42Vote: 1/10

Sort of like watching an old episode of "Dynasty"- you'll laugh, but at

all the wrong things, and remember how 'cool' you thought the film when

it first came out. It isn't, and the proof is in the pudding, however;

it's quite fun to watch Rob Lowe pretending to play the sax, and the

other folk with their hair and unfortunate wardrobe choices all swing

and sway in time. The plot is really just 'boys meet girls and they all

whine'- but it's kind of an interesting thing to see how rich and

entitled they all are, it somehow perfectly crystalizes the 80's in a

way. Some good performances, Mare Winningham and Ally Sheedy are the

best I think, or at least the most realistic. They guys all seem to be

playing at being cool, and in fact this film led to the birth of the

infamous "Brat Pack", a moniker that I'm sure they'd all like to forget.

Shot like a soap opera (witness Demi Moore weeping as the curtains

billow around her) and scored within an inch of it's breathless life,

this is just a monument to excess, proof that teen films ended up going

way too far. Sad really, but interesting and kind of fun at the same

time.

Perhaps one must be of a certain age to truly appreciate this film. The"self-absorbed" comments seem to spring, in my mind, from older(middle-aged or elderly) viewers, or maybe just from grad students whoare frightened that their prof may be reading their dissertation onthis film.

In my experience as a 30 year old woman, most young people who are intheir twenties are self-absorbed. I think it's a natural and necessarypart of thriving in the current United States' culture. I saw thismovie in my late teens, and it made a tremendous emotional impact onme. I did not see the characters as shallow, superficial, or selfish,but just as regular people like myself and my friends.

Even now that I have left my twenties, I can go back and stillappreciate St. Elmo's Fire; not just for the 80's nostalgia (thoughthat is a big draw, I must admit) but because I perceive the charactersas living stories that I can identify with in parts. Especially as aslightly more mature adult, I can look back and say, "Yeah, I remembergoing through that." or "I knew someone like that five years ago." St.Elmo's Fire will always have a place in my heart for what it representsto my generation, and to the generation that actually came of ageduring the film's premiere. Maybe one had to grow up in the 80's -whether in childhood or adolescence - to enjoy St. Elmo's Fire.

Okay. So it's not timeless. Who cares? There are some great scenes inthis flick and it's a fun watch, even though it always makes me cry.

Seven friends -- fresh out of college and in their mid-20's -- findthemselves struggling with real-life issues such as breaking away froman over-bearing family, getting married, raising children, finding acareer, finding love and creating an identity, all while trying tomaintain a tight-knit friendship with one another as they booze it upat "St. Elmo's," a bar that perhaps served as the grandfather to thecoffee shop in "Friends" or even the pub in "How I Met Your Mother."They laugh, they fight, they learn, and by the end of the flick, thingshave changed, but their "fire" has remained.

You might recognize three stars of "The Breakfast Club" -- Judd Nelson,Ally Sheedy and Emilio Estevez -- who have magically turned intocollege grads, and alongside Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe andMare Winningham, round out the solid cast of "St. Elmo's Fire." A gooddecade before bringing a perfectly good "Batman" franchise to itsknees, writer/director Joel Schumacher did what few films could do withthe "Brat Pack" in tow. That is, he created a film that dared to beover-dramatic and dared to touch upon the ugliness of growing up longafter the security of school and family has faded. While somecharacters and their stories are questionable (Emilio Estevez, I'mlooking at you), the little stories that make up their day-to-day lifeare, for the most part, stuff that everyone goes through, and none ofthe actors seem ashamed to look ridiculous in portraying the selfish,the immature and the inexperienced. For the most part, the charactersfeel real, and that's why the film works as well as it does.

Perhaps it's a little too over-dramatic and self-indulgent for its owngood, but maybe that's the point. All seven characters are colorful,albeit, horribly flawed human beings, and it shows in the most awkwardand endearing moments of the film. You may not understand theirdecisions or why they choose to bring so much drama down on themselves,but you'll at least relate to it in one way or another. How youinterpret and appreciate the film rests both in your position in lifeand whether or not you can recognize the biggest flaws in yourself.It's a film that will speak volumes to anyone fresh out of college, intheir 20's or with the hindsight to realize how silly and self-mademuch of the drama in their life has been.
