'Shades its confused tangle of friendship, love and desire with atmosphere, intimacy and a lingering sense of outsider yearning' - Hollywood Reporter

Australian Premiere

Special Jury Prize - Sundance Film Festival 2016

It's the early ‘90s, Kurt Cobain has just died and shy high school student Jack has trouble making friends, but all this changes when he befriends Mark, the son of his mum's new boyfriend. Mark has charisma to burn and Jack is instantly captivated. They befriend Sarah and the three form a tight unit, skipping class to smoke pot and listen to music. But in this small town, prejudice and danger are never far away and their friendship is put to the test. As You Are features three exceptional performances, with Charlie Heaton (Jonathan from Stranger Things) in a breakthrough role, being hailed as this generation's River Phoenix.
