At first glance, WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS is just another shallow millennial movie. But actually, this entertaining film about music and dreams is a gem with strong and aspirational message.
Zac Efron is as effective as the other characters here — natural, charming and with the necessary bravado.
The movie’s music genre isn’t exactly my jam but its playlist is a tasty treat. An outstanding compliment to this simple yet arresting film.
WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS does not actually give its audience a new story or perspective but its storytelling is so engaging, you’ll enjoy the emotional ride. The ending doesn’t disappoint too. There’s nothing laurel worthy here but it is sincere and without artsy fartsy pretensions. Thus, a refreshing experience.
