Harlan Jacobson’s Talk Cinema: Waves
Directed by Trey Edward Shults
“The most stunning movie experience of the year.”—Sean Fennessey, The Ringer
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.
Starring Kelvin Harrison Jr., Taylor Russell, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Lucas Hedges, and Sterling K. Brown. 2019, U.S., DCP, 135 minutes. Rated R.
