Two American teenagers discover love, life, friendships and some difficult truths about themselves, their friends and their families in the new HBO and Sky series, We Are Who We Are, from the Oscar-nominated director of Call Me By Your Name, Luca Guadagnino.
Jack Dylan Graser stars as Fraser, a shy and introverted 14-year-old who moves from New York to a U.S. military base in Veneto, Italy, with his mothers, Sarah (Chloë Sevigny) and Maggie (Alice Braga).
Fraser finds a friend when he meets Caitlin (Jordan Kristine Seamón), who has lived with her family on the base for several years and speaks Italian. Caitlin is the center of her group of friends, which includes Britney (Francesca Scorsese), an outspoken, witty, sexually uninhibited girl; the cheerful and good-natured Craig (Corey Knight), a soldier in his twenties; Sam (Ben Taylor), Caitlin’s possessive boyfriend; Craig’s younger brother; Enrico (Sebastiano Pigazzi), a playful eighteen-year-old from Veneto who has a weak spot for Britney; and Valentina (Beatrice Barichella), an Italian girl.
The cast also includes Spence Moore II as Caitlin’s older brother, Danny; Kid Cudi as her father, Richard, and Faith Alabi as her mother, Jenny.
