About this movie

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.

ONE OF THE VERY BEST FILMS OF 2019. Waves came to me in a way totally unexpected- a wildly stressful gut punching drama in a good way. It is truly a hard watch for part of it and that is in a good way. The film then gets incredibly aimed at your emotions.... And hits them... Hard. Sterling K. Brown is a great dramatic and emotional powerhouse in this as well and all the other acting is on point well. 5 out of 5.
