We Are Your Friends


We Are Your Friends
Filled with eye candy and set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, we follow an aspiring 23-year-old DJ who spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that he hopes will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ, who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when both fall for the same young woman. This brings matters to a head, forcing tough choices.

Tomatometer quote iconWe Are Your Friends boasts magnetic stars and glimmers of insight, but they're lost in a clichéd coming-of-age story as programmed as the soundtrack's beats.
