Antonoff’s musical interpretation of 1985’s “The Breakfast Club” is slated for April 1.
“I chose ‘The Breakfast Club’ because I think about that film often when I write,” Antonoff told The Times. “There are certain films and feelings that remind me of where I’m from.”
“I grew up in suburban New Jersey in a similar state of strange boredom as ‘The Breakfast Club.’ I constantly thought about getting out, and that feeling is so present in this film,” he added. “A lot of my world now is looking back at that time period from different vantage points.”
