Waves

LET IT RUSH OVER YOU.

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.

"Operatic, immersive and overwhelming, Trey Edward Shults’s Waves is going to have a difficult time this fall movie season. Some will be tempted to label it this year’s Moonlight, given how the films share stories of young black men struggling with cultural expectations, south Florida settings and tender scenes of love in the, well, waves. I fear others may be anxious to call it some sort of #woke-er Manchester By the Sea, noting how both films pivot on grief and feature standout performances from Lucas Hedges. But Waves is unmistakably and defiantly its own thing – and when its ideas and aesthetics coalesce, it is a wonder to behold. Split into two distinct halves – the second stronger, although messier, than the first – Shults’s film follows the breaking down and possible rebuild of an ambitious American family, ruled by a strong-headed but loving patriarch (Sterling K. Brown). Shults’s background in horror (Krishna, It Comes at Night) might initially make Waves seem a curious departure. But for most of its running time, and with swirling camerawork that will spark nausea among some audiences – Waves is as anxiety-inducing as any other journey into the dark and unknowable." – Globe and Mail
