Prep yourself for a rollercoaster of relatable teenage emotions, because the director of Call Me By Your Name, Luca Guadagnino, is about to drop a mini-series with HBO called We Are Who We Are.
Like previous works of Guadagnino, the eight-part series is set to explore romance, friendship and confused pubescent emotions. We’ll also be taken back to Northern Italy, though this youth-centric drama will centre around a group of teenagers living on US Army base.
Leading the screen is Jack Dylan Grazer (It, Shazam!) and newcomer Jordan Kristine Seamón, playing American teenagers attempting to discover their identities while living on the base with their Army-employed parents, far away from the normality and creature comforts of home.
Guadagnino has again gone above and beyond with the cast, employing the many talents of Kid Cudi alongside 90s darling Chloë Sevigny for supporting roles. Making her screen debut is Francesca Scorsese, daughter of visionary auteur Martin Scorsese.
While the cast and director are enough to prick the ears of any modern-day cinephile, it’s worth noting that HBO is behind We Are Who We Are, which will likely add another notch in the belt to a near-flawless back catalogue of series.
We Are Who We Are is slated for a September release. There’s no word on where Australians can watch it as yet, however, one would assume to keep an eye on Neon given their ties with HBO.
