Here’s the trailer for We Are Your Friends. I gotta admit I have a soft spot for a good coming of age story. In the case of We Are Your Friends, Zac Efron plays a guy called Cole trying to make his mark as a DJ. He promotes parities on the weekend and explores the nightlife, all while trying to figure out how to set himself apart and make it as the next big thing in electronic music.
Being a DJ was never something I aspired to growing up. I preferred being amongst the crowd high as kite dancing up a storm, but I am a sucker for a movie about find yourself and paving your own path in life, so the trailer for We Are Your Friends has sparked a little curiosity in me.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Studiocanal comes the romantic drama “We Are Your Friends.” The film marks Max Joseph’s (MTV’s “Catfish: The TV Show”) feature film directorial debut, and stars Zac Efron (“Neighbors”), Emily Ratajkowski (upcoming “Entourage,” “Gone Girl”) and Wes Bentley (“Interstellar,” “The Hunger Games”).
“We Are Your Friends” is about what it takes to find your voice. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole (Efron) spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James (Bentley), who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie (Ratajkowski). With Cole’s forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he is destined for.
We Are Your Friends does look like it has a bit of potential, however it would be good to see Efron with his shirt off more. I mean lets be honest it is one of his best assets. The film is set to be released in August.
