Set in the early 1990s, As You Are unfolds as a series of disparate memories. Prompted by a police investigation, we witness alternating perspectives of pivotal moments in the relationship between three teenage friends: Jack, Mark, and Sarah. Bound by their aversion to the culture around them, Jack and Mark explore the limits of friendship and love until Mark's judgmental father tears them apart.

Just as Jack and Sarah are adjusting to life without Mark, he gets unexpectedly thrown back into their lives. The two boys struggle to navigate complex emotions that are compounded by the disapproval they feel from all around. Ultimately, tensions rise to a boiling point, and tragedy echoes through their world.

Infused with the rebel spirit of Kurt Cobain and propelled by star-making turns from Owen Campbell as Jack, Charlie Heaton as Mark, and Amandla Stenberg as Sarah (with strong support from Mary Stuart Masterson and Scott Cohen), As You Are is the feature writing-and-directing debut from gifted newcomer Miles Joris-Peyrafitte. This refreshing take on the coming-of-age tale boasts a plethora of young talent with boundless potential.
