Here Are The Young Men

Friday, March 12th • Available from 9 AM ET

Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Rob Doyle and set in 2003, HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN charts a fateful summer in the lives of three Dublin teens — aimless Matthew (Dean-Charles Chapman, GAME OF THRONES, 1917), his charismatic yet deranged friend Kearney (Finn Cole, PEAKY BLINDERS) and their precocious friend Rez (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, SING STREET, VIKINGS) — as they embark on an epic binge to celebrate a future without limits. But when they witness a catastrophic accident, the incident sends them spiraling. With a killer ensemble cast that includes recent breakout star Anya Taylor-Joy (EMMA, THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT, THE WITCH), HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN is a gritty noughties coming-of-age tale, a millennial TRAINSPOTTING-meets-A CLOCKWORK ORANGE set to a soundtrack of Joy Division, Primal Scream and The Chemical Brothers.

Please note: This title is available to viewers located anywhere in the United States and U.S. Territories.
