Cole Carter (Efron) is an aspiring DJ living in the San Fernando Valley, constantly paling around with his three buds (Jonny Weston, Shiloh Fernandez and Alex Shaffer), all of whom represent a different youthful stereotype. In the first act, we’re told multiple times that these guys “live for Thursday,” the night each week where they promote Cole spinning at a club called Social. On one such night, Cole meets once-great DJ James Reed, played by Wes Bentley, the unquestionable all-star of this film. Around the moment Reed takes Cole under his alcoholic, washed-up wing and introduces him to his assistant/girlfriend Sophie (Ratajkowski), the narrative takes a very familiar shape.
