Director Trey Edward Shults, known for A24’s 2017 horror film, It Comes at Night, returns with #Waves. The film follows a struggling family as they traverse the hilly landscape of everyday life. The trailer doesn’t give much away, but we do see that there are strained relationships, tears, and what looks like some tender moments. #Waves stars Sterling K. Brown, Lucas Hedges, Kelvin Harrison, Jr., Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie, and Renee Elise Goldsberry.
#Waves had it’s film festival premiere at The Telluride Film Festival in August, and will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10. Anyone that’s seen an episode of This Is Us knows that Sterling K. Brown does emotional acting as good as anyone, so i’m sure he’ll bring the same caliber of acting to this film. But I’m excited for all the young talent in this film. Kelvin Harrison, Jr. has been in It Comes at Night, and also most recently starred in Luce. Lucas Hedges is in everything. Taylor Russell was in Escape Room. And Alexa Demie starred in this summer’s hit show on HBO, Euphoria. This film looks like one to remember. #Waves will hit theaters in November.
