    Synopsis


    St. Elmo's Fire
    Post-collegiate angst, '80s style, is the subject of this coming-of-age ensemble piece, which traces the fortunes of a group of Georgetown grads as they enter the real world and grapple with work, infidelity, and adulthood. The most outwardly upscale member of the gang, Jules (Demi Moore), hides a plethora of emotional baggage behind a chic wardrobe, an expensive apartment, a fashionable drug habit, and lots of meaningless casual sex. Her friend Wendy (Mare Winningham) has the opposite problem; a trust-fund baby with body-image issues and little sexual experience, she's hung up on Billy (Rob Lowe), a no-good, sax-playing drunkard who can't face up to his responsibilities in the job market or at home with his wife and young child. Such open infidelity is anathema to Alex (Judd Nelson), who must maintain a sense of propriety even while engaging in compulsive womanizing; after all, the Democrat-turned-Republican's nascent political career requires the sort of picture-perfect relationship he shares with girlfriend Leslie (Ally Sheedy). That doesn't sit too well with tortured writer Kevin (Andrew McCarthy), who toils away at a newspaper job and pines away for the unattainable Leslie. Unrequited love also dogs Kirby (Emilio Estevez), a law-school student whose greatest wish is to romance classy doctor Dale Biberman (Andie MacDowell), who is, alas, way out of his league. Co-written by director Joel Schumacher and his studio intern, Carl Kurlander, St. Elmo's Fire spawned the number one pop hit "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)," which was credited to John Parr but co-written by music producer David Foster. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

      If you were an 80s kid, you probably lived and breathed this movie and its soundtrack back in the day. The characters were relatable while flawed we still loved all of them and wanted to be like them. Great Blu-ray Quality! Thank you Best Buy for carrying this fine 80s hit!

      St Elmo's Fire is a great movie and a classic for the "Baby Boomers" I first watched this movie back when it was first released. The so called "BRAT PACK" made several movies during this time and I enjoyed them as I could relate in some way with what was happening in theri lives and social arena.

      It's a good movie, there's lots of serious issues going on between the people in the group and in their own lives, 80's movies were great, had to have this one too on blu ray! Actually feel like watching now that I'm reviewing it! Just watch it. :)
