Overview

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.

    The Best

    St.Elmos's fire is one of the best acted, best written movies ever...It always brings a tear to my eye... The Rob Lowe scene on the roof when he says how college was ''out of hand'' and it isn't like that anymore made me think of my wild times... The Demi Moore scene in her room at the end of the movie is a classic... In a time when movies had to keep your attention with plots and dialogue instead of special effects and nudity, this movie is one of the best

    Wonderful film

    I saw this film a few years ago, when I was in the same stage of my life as its characters, and really enjoyed it. Although some of the situations presented are a bit 80's-specific, the actual issues it deals with are the same nearly 20 years later. This film is also much stronger that the Gen X flicks such as Reality Bites that were supposed to address those themes. I would definitely recommend it.

    St. Elmo's Fire is a great movie!

    The first time that I saw St. Elmo's Fire, I was in the 7th Grade and I couldn't really relate to it that much. Years later I saw it again and loved the movie. It's such a fun movie, the cast is great, and I love the music. If you have not seen this movie, see it!!! It's about friendship, love, and growing up. All of the actors and actresses are wonderful in it!!
