A heartrending story about the universal capacity for compassion and growth, even in the darkest of times— WAVES in cinemas July 23.

From acclaimed director Trey Edward Shults and starring Sterling K. Brown (This is Us) comes a heart-breaking and intimate family story of staggering beauty. Set against the vibrant landscape of South Florida, and featuring an astonishing ensemble of award-winning actors and breakouts alike, WAVES traces the poignant 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 great loss.


A sweeping, emotional knockout, critics have been raving about this visual and visceral cinematic experience, calling it “an emotional powerhouse that will leave you utterly breathless” (Next Best Picture), “the movie of this moment” (GQ), and “the most exceptional film I’ve seen all year” (The Playlist).
