New 'Waves' Trailer Provides A Closer Look At A24's Heartbreaking Family Drama

A24 has dropped a second trailer for its critically acclaimed and highly anticipated film, Waves. 

From Trey Edward Shults, the film features an ensemble cast including Sterling K. Brown, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Renee Elise Goldsberry, Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie and Lucas Hedges. It premiered to critical acclaim at the Telluride Film Festival before heading on a full festival run which also included the Toronto International Film Festival.

The studio has given it a prime awards season release date of November 15.

Here’s the description: 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.
