St. Elmo's Fire Film Synopsis
A group of friends graduate from the halls of Georgetown University into lives that revolve around sex and career aspirations. Kirby waits tables to pay for law school. His roommate Kevin struggles at a D.C. newspaper as he searches for the meaning of love. Jules, an object of adoration and envy, but secretly she has problems of her own. Demure Wendy is in love with Billy—a loveable sax player and an irresponsible drunk. Alec wants it all: a career in politics and the appearance of a traditional home life. Alec’s girlfriend, Leslie, is an ambitious architect who doesn't know about his infidelity, but his new allegiance to the Republican Party is already enough to put her off marriage.

Interesting movie with great diversity.The great thing about St. Elmo's, is its fantastic reality. These people are real, though stereotyped. I absolutely loved Andrew McCarthy in this movie! He and Ally Sheedy make a great team and that's to say little of their looks... I could do with a more cleaned up version of the whole Billy mess, but apart from that it is pretty enjoyable. I'm part of generation Y and I enjoyed this movie very much. Beware for viewers under fifteen though, it's got a lot of mature content..Score: 3/5
