‘Here Are The Young Men’ is a fresh and shocking film featuring an all-star cast including Dean Charles Chapman (Game of Thrones, 1917), Finn Cole (Peaky Blinders), Golden Globe™ winner Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit, Emma), Emmett J Scanlan (Peaky Blinders), Travis Fimmel (Vikings, Danger Close), Ferdia Walsh-Peelo (Sing Street) and Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones).
Set in Dublin 2003. Aimless teenager Matthew (Chapman) and his disaffected friends leave school into a social vacuum of drink, drugs and thrill-seeking in one last summer of adolescence. Matthew romantically yearns after his free-spirited friend Jen (Taylor-Joy) and struggles to maintain his increasingly disturbing relationship with the magnetic but sadistic Kearney (Cole). Whilst their precocious friend Rez (Walsh-Peelo) has started to succumb to paranoia and depression.
Matthew and the group are soon led by the deranged Kearney into a world of nihilistic violence, falling into shocking acts of transgression that will irrevocably change their lives.
Here Are The Young Men is based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Rob Doyle. The film is directed by Eoin Macken (Cold) and co-written by Doyle and Macken.
