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.

Filmed on location in Dublin, Here Are The Young Men was produced by Hail Mary Pictures’ Richard Bolger (Cardboard Gangsters), Union Entertainment Group’s Noah C Haeussner (Arctic) and Edwina Casey (co-producing) with the support of Screen Ireland, Funny Leopard, Bending Light, Glanzrock Productions and EGG Studios.

Signature Entertainment will be releasing the film on digital platforms from 30th April 2021.  Wildcard Distribution will be releasing the film in Irish cinemas later this year.
