Cinemas are beginning to open up again, and things are starting to get back to normal, and that’s something we can all be excited about. At SpicyPulp, we’re very excited that cinemas complexes are beginning to open up again, and one evocative piece of dramatic cinema, director Trey Edward Shults’s Waves is a film we can all be excited to see and which NEEDS to be viewed on the cinema screen for maximum effect.
Check out the official trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
In terms of rising cinematic auteur’s Trey Edward Shults fits into that category and he’s already proven himself to a be an incredibly capable filmmaker with 2017’s It Comes at Night. Now in a complete 360 turn he takes on the highs, lows, joy, love, trials, tribulations and ultimately hope of a contemporary American family in what appears to be a totally beautiful piece of cinema.
Headlining Waves is the incredible Sterling K. Brown, and from the this trailer he looks like he’s going to deliver something amazing with his performance here as family patriarch Ronald Williams, and he’s also joined by two fantastic young rising stars in Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Taylor Russell as his children, Tyler and Emily.
This first trailer for Waves is simply stunning and those who love the experience of the cinema will be enthralled by this film, not only for the crisp cinematography of cinematographer Drew Daniels, but also with the score which is composed by industry heavy hitters Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
Waves appears to be an utterly magnificent cinematic experience and audiences will soon be able to savor it themselves, in cinemas, on July 23.
