“Find your sound. Find your future.”
“We Are Your Friends” is an upcoming film produced by Studiocanal and Working Title Films starring Zac Efron, Wes Bentley, and Emily Ratajkowski and directed by Max Joseph. The film is a romance drama about the electronic dance music (EDM) and Hollywood nightlife scene.
The plot? Two words: Dance music:
Cole (played by Zac Efron), a 23-year-old DJ who struggles in the Hollywood’s electronic dance music scene, has dreams of becoming a major record producer. Eventually, older DJ James (played by Wes Bentley), begins to mentor him, but Cole makes a connection with James’ girlfriend, Sophie (played by Emily Ratajkowski). When Cole’s relationship with Sophie blossoms and his friendship with James begins to break down as a result, he is forced into difficult decisions over his future.
Is it something worth watching? It sounds like a pretty standard rags-to-riches, “big break” film and it’s coming at a real apt time, just as the US continues to ride on the EDM explosion and gold rush.
And if you’ve ever been, like, the biggest fan of Zac Efron then prepare yourself for loads of Zac Efron wearing goofily oversized headphones, Zac Efron wearing colorful tank tops, Zac Efron running through the streets holding hands with a lithe brunette, Zac Efron looking pensive while “having an idea”, and Zac Efron showering.
Zac Efron being a “bro”. Zac Efron channeling Calvin Harris the best he can/the best he knows how. Just Zac Efron.
