At the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival the stunning film WAVES premiered. 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. Sadly WAVES failed to find an interested audience when it was released to theatres in the Fall of 2019. WAVES is our next Rialto Recommends selection. The San Francisco Chronicle raved "Whatever your reaction to this ambitious, boldly original and hard-hitting family drama, you could never accuse writer-director Trey Edward Shults of holding anything back." While the Houston Chronicle said "(Shults) has crafted an emotionally pummeling yet ultimately uplifting work that ranks as one of the year's most unique and individual films. And in a year that has given us "Us," "Parasite," "The Farewell" and "The Irishman," that's saying something." IndieWire said "Waves asks a lot of its audience as it refashions the material for a tearjerker into a vibrant work deep with feeling." WAVES is available to rent for 99¢ from Amazon, Apple, FandangoNow, Vudu and Microsoft as well as for a more traditional fee from RedBox, GooglePlay, YouTube, and DirectTV HERE.
