Zac Efron stars in this romantic drama about what it takes to find your voice. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole (Efron) spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James (Bentley), who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James's much younger girlfriend, Sophie (Ratajkowski). With Cole's forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he is destined for.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: We 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.

Empty, drug-filled drama about quest for music, fame, fun.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that We Are Your Friends is a drama about DJ culture in Southern California's San Fernando Valley. Teens may be drawn in by the pulsing electronic dance music or stars Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski, but the material is definitely geared toward more mature viewers. Topless women are shown (and women are objectified in general), and there are sex scenes and kissing. Language is very strong, with frequent use of "f--k," "s--t," "c--t," and many others. Characters get in fights and drink a lot, as well as doing many different kinds of drugs, from cocaine to Ecstasy and pot. A key character is a drug dealer, and one character dies, apparently from consuming too much during a party.
