HBO’s ‘We Are Who We Are’, Bursting with Teen Angst and Panasonic Organizations

TThere is something wrong when watching television shows or movies about today’s youth, especially when the aim is to capture their lives with as much authenticity as possible. Call me by your name Director Luca Guadagnino attempts in his new HBO series we are who we are.

You feel for them. of course you do. Coming of age is a journey which none of us take lightly, yet still fulfills our emotional scars. But, increasingly, you are afraid of them. Or are you afraid? for them?

It’s a stress we are who we are, Such as HBO’s other recent “Can You Believe How Teenagers Are These Days?” Chain excitement, Accepts, but does not attempt to answer. Instead, debauchery and defacement, a fatal negligence as interpreted by this new generation, appears there and sits uncomfortably. What you are left with is how clearly you understand, and how much you cannot relate at all.

On the surface level, a lot of we are who we are Quite incredible.

It begins with 14-year-old Fraser (Jack Dylan Grazer) and his mom, Sarah (Chloe Sevaneg) and Maggie (Alice Braga) arriving at an army base outside a quiet, quirky and seductive Italian country town . Sarah performed her duties, leaving her esoteric son, to find her place among the litter of other inhabitants of a foreign army, though a more pleasantly free country. Whatever difficulties Fraser has, he can dispense with the bottle. vino rojo.

Before he starts talking, you understand that Fraser is an outbreak. His hair is bleached and unruly like a bleached mop. His nails have been painted yellow and black. He is wearing an orange hoodie over a leopard-print wide leg that falls through his shin, and his apple earbuds are exploding and exploding, as if to separate him from reality.

We follow him as he walks amok to the base, disappearing into his head and flashing only bits and pieces of dialogue over the music playing in his headphones, the camera often adopting his point of view as he searches.

Almost immediately there are clues to his developing sexual identity as he stumbles into the pool locker room and showers and turns on naked men. And there are clues to her mother and her non-traditional relationship with the behavior issues that underlie it. I am still unsure I understand why, after he suddenly slaps her in the face and calls her a fool, he starts to cradle and hug her. Maybe mysticism is the point?

Everyone knows who Fraser is, because he is the new kid, because he is the new kid from New York, because he is the new kid from New York, whose mother is the commander, and because he is the new kid from New York, whose mother is the commander and Also gay. It is a lot of qualifiers, descriptors and attention seekers for a person who, when it becomes clear, is not yet fully capable of describing himself.

Episode 2 listens to all the half-baked conversation in the periphery and the characters who seem to be lurking in the background during Fraser’s scenes and the recent tales narrating the narrative through them through the eyes of Katlin (Jordan Christine Seamon) Huh. Caitlin and Fraser become fast, intimate friends, a partnership that baffles the rest of their classmates and only makes sense to themselves. Those two people are not entirely sure who they are or who they want to be, taking solace in each other’s confusion.
