Luca Guadagnino’s New Series Is ‘Euphoria’ Meets ‘Call Me By Your Name’

If, like me, you couldn’t stop thinking about how much you want to escape everything and live out your queer summer romance in the Italian countryside after watching Call Me By Your Name, then, boy, do I have some good news for you. Call Me By Your Name and Suspiria director Luca Guadagnino has a new project coming soon and it seems like the perfect combination of CMBYN and Euphoria.

We Are Who We Are is a new original HBO TV series about a group of teens growing up in a U.S. army base in the gorgeous sun-kissed small town of Chioggia, Italy—roughly 50kms away from Venice. Guadagnino’s next coming of age project closely follows Fraser (Jack Dylan Glazer), a queer boy raised by two women in the army, and Caitlin, a young teen who’s questioning their gender identity

The show only just premiered in the United States earlier this month and critics are already in love with it. Vulture’s Jen Chaney called it “coming-of-age poetry,” while Variety’s Caroline Framke thinks it “captures the defiant spontaneity of teenagers.”

 With a soundtrack that sounds like the sequel to Call Me By Your Name composer Ryuichi Sakamoto’s pieces and composed by Devonté Hynes aka Blood Orange, it certainly is some A-grade Good Shit. Fun fact, Blood Orange plans on dropping the full soundtrack on the 2nd of October. 

Oh, and it looks gorgeously shot, too.

Where Can I Watch We Are Who We Are In Australia?

And thankfully, SBS confirmed that Luca Guadagnino’s We Are Who We Are will be available to stream in Australia on SBS On Demand. That means that we can catch this potentially ~amazing~ teen queer television experience for virtually zero cents. 

Literally nothing is stopping you from watching it and all the other amazing tv shows and films on SBS On Demand… well, when it’s out. As of the 28th of September, there is no official release date but when we hear it, we’ll tell you.
