Writer/director Trey Edward Shults’ Waves, which recently got a coveted Nov. 1 limited release slot from A24, released its first trailer today, showcasing the family drama’s ensemble cast headed by Sterling K. Brown and set to Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed.”
In addition to Brown, Waves features Kelvin Harrison Jr., Lucas Hedges, Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie, with Renée Elise Goldsberry.
Per A24: 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.
Following its world premiere at Telluride, Waves next screens at the Toronto Film Festival.
