It’s been over 30 years since Emilio Estevez has made a movie inside a library. That movie, of course, is “The Breakfast Club,” the iconic ’80s teen movie. His latest though, “The Public,” has him locked up with a different group of rebels.

In “The Public” — which Estevez stars in, writes and directs — a group of homeless people stage a sit-in at a public library in downtown Cincinnati when frigid temperatures and a lack of available homeless shelters forces them to find refuge. Estevez plays a librarian who ends up getting roped into something of a hostage situation and leads a charge for homeless rights.
