The Silver Bullet ~ We Are Your Friends

we_are_your_friends_ver2

Synopsis: An aspiring DJ looks to make it in the electronic music scene.

Release Date: August 28, 2015

Thoughts: I’m starting to feel a little sorry for Zac Efron at this point because he’s yet to really prove himself as more than just a pretty face with amazing abs.  He’s struggled with dramatic roles that call on him to act (That Awkward Moment, The Lucky One) and his biggest hit has been The Lorax, an animated film he provided vocal work for.  While Neighbors did good business in 2014, you could hardly attribute that success to Efron’s work.

So I’m worried for We Are Your Friends, Efron’s latest attempt to go dramatic as a go-getter DJ that’s trying to catch a break in the popular EDM (Electronic Dance Music) scene.  It looks like a messy “driven to adulthood” film with an amber-hued California as its backdrop.  On the other hand, while his performances aren’t always a success, Efron can’t be faulted for choosing appropriate pictures for his age and peer group and EDM is a hot topic right now…it’s possible that the time is right for Efron’s official “big break” into believable adult fare.
