When Cole meets James (Wes Bentley, the creepy neighbour in American Beauty) a famous yet oldish DJ, his life and career is about to change. But he finds himself really attracted to James’s assistant and girlfriend, Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski, model, seen in the music video “Blurred Lines”) and this new lifestyle brings the question of loyalty: towards his best friends that he neglects, and towards his new friend and mentor that he betrays. However, the romance between Cole and Soph is at the very border of being too much, and what’s more we can see some overly sexual outfit and even some underboob here and there, which I think is totally unnecessary considering the quality of the movie.
We Are Your Friends is about what it takes to find your voice and realize your dreams, seizing the opportunities, and not screwing them up (or at least getting back on your feet afterwards). This movie will pump you up and make you want to dance in the theater. Or at least shake your head in rhythm. I recommend it, it is definitely a good time!
