Andrew Garfield We Exist

After dressing up to fight crime in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Andrew Garfield is ready to change costumes again, but this time for something a bit more serious. The actor stars in Arcade Fire's newest video, "We Exist," and after a tease last week, the full clip is here.

The song tells the story of a son trying to come out to his father and the video sees Garfield playing a young, gay man trying to come to grips with his sexual identity. Dressing in drag and hitting a bar, he still feels like an outsider in his own skin until he hits Coachella (where the latter part of the video was shot) and stands in awe and triumph on stage with the band, where he feels truly liberated. David Wilson directed the video, and you can watch it all below. [Consequence Of Sound]
