We Are Your Friends movie quotes follow the lives of one young man in Southern California looking for a way to make a life for himself. The musical drama was written by Max Joseph and Meaghan Oppenheimer using a story created by Richard Silverman. Max Joseph also directed We Are Your Friends, which opened in theaters on August 28, 2015.

In We Are Your Friends, Cole (Zac Efron), Ollie (Shiloh Fernandez), Squirrel (Alex Shaffer), and Mason (Jonny Weston) live in the valley outside of Los Angeles. As they work tedious blue collar jobs, they yearn for better lives with fame and fortune. Only Cole, however, has a plan for that. Cole is a DJ, and while he's not popular or famous, he does attract the eye of veteran DJ James (Wes Bentley).

But while Cole works with James to perfect his DJ skills, Cole also grows close to James's girlfriend, Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski), leading to tension between Cole and James. To make matters worse, Ollie, Squirrel and Mason get involved with a real estate venture with Paige (Jon Bernthal), and grow distant from Cole. With several paths he can take, Cole faces some tough decisions about how to make his future a happy and successful one.

We Are Your Friends helps close out the summer 2015 movie season alongside the likes of She's Funny That Way, American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47, and Straight Outta Compton.

Cole: Study halls, SATs, liberal arts, student loans, layoffs, bailouts, broken dreams, this is not our future. Things are different for us. We can invent an app, start a blog, sell things online. My friends and I, we promote parties. But if you're a DJ, all you need is a laptop, some talent and one track. That track is your ticket to everything... If you have a dream and it's made of everything that made you, hardship, friendship, so much love, that's your ticket to everything. This is my future.

Cole lays out his current life and what he has realized is the key to a good life. He knows that the opportunities are wide open for kids his generation and he knows how to get the ticket to his success.

Cole: It's the DJ's job to get the crowd out of their heads and into their bodies. I like to start them off at about 125 beats per minute. Once you've locked onto their heart rate, you start bringing them up song by song. 128 beats per minute, that's the magic number.

When DJing a party, Cole meets a pretty young woman, Sophie, who urges him to pump up the crowd. As a DJ, Cole does just that, which is what he does best.

Ollie: I just read about this guy, right, who invented Instagram. He sold it for $400 million. Now he was 26 years old. You guys want to make real money or do you want to live and die in the valley?
Cole: We gotta get out of here.

Ollie urges the crew of guys to find their own niche, the one that will get them out of the valley and into fame and fortune. They need to stop working for the man and make men out of themselves.
