'We Are Your Friends' Review

I'm not so far removed from my youth that I can't feel a kinship to something like We Are Your Friends, which stars Zac Efron as a DJ trying to break into the world of EDM. For a new generation, perhaps this movie will be an American Graffiti or Reality Bites: an impudent, urgent "We are young!" state of the union. But, lordy, the film's story couldn't be more familiar. (Still, I think Wes Bentley is quite good in it as a mentor figure to the young Efron.) I reviewed We Are Your Friends for Screen International.
