VIDEO: Renee Elise Goldsberry and Sterling K. Brown Star in Trailer for A24's WAVES
A24 has released the trailer for Waves, from writer/director Trey Edward Shults and starring Kelvin Harrison, Jr., Lucas Hedges, Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie, with Renée Elise Goldsberry and Sterling K. Brown.
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.

Waves will be released in theaters this November.
