Description

Set against the vibrant landscape of South Florida, and featuring an astonishing ensemble of award-winning actors and breakouts alike, Waves traces the epic emotional journey of a suburban African-American family—led by a well-intentioned but domineering father—as they navigate love, forgiveness and coming together in the aftermath of a loss. From acclaimed director Trey Edward Shults, Waves is a heartrending story about the universal capacity for compassion and growth even in the darkest of times.

What the Critics are Saying:

A domestic melodrama in an anguished key, Trey Edward Shults's Waves is the shattering story of a Florida family undone by a shocking tragedy. Full review
