“If you are a parent, it is heartbreaking - if you are a young adult it is terrifying. But as filmmaking goes, it feels vital.”
- Jamie East, The Sun

“[A] bravura piece of film-making by Trey Edward Shults.”
- Brian Viner, Daily Mail

“The film oozes cinematic style (every shot has a point, every camera movement an intention), while Shults's screenplay dives deep and tackles essential themes - parenting, forgiveness and the release of death. It's beautiful work.”
- Kevin Maher, The Times

“Waves isn't merely a film about teenagers, it's virtually a teenager in film form. It's also the kind of cinema that keeps you young.”
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

“The movie is perfectly legible in conventional linear terms. But where it goes, how it gets there and how it comes back again, is more unexpected.”
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“A compassionate meditation on love, loss and family, Waves is hyper-stylish yet emotionally grounded. Despite some very high drama, it has a huge heart, and hits you where it hurts.”
- Alex Godfrey, Empire Magazine

“Despite clearly being a film of two halves and filling a lengthy runtime, Waves delivers a moving, empathetic, shocking, and sensual film.”
- Lewis Knight, Daily Mirror

“The artistic evolution Shults is undergoing makes him as exciting as anyone at work -- he's as sharp as the young Darren Aronofsky, and his heart is only growing larger.”
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out

Trey Edward Shults (KrishaIt Comes at Night) steps into the spotlight with this heartbreaking, visually stunning family melodrama.

Waves follows promising athlete Tyler (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) as he finishes high school, pushed to success by his father (Sterling K. Brown). His need for an outlet starts to take dangerous turns, leading to tragedy.

Managing to be expansive and yet deeply personal, this is a shattering story that is full of experimental, aesthetically arresting moments from a director to watch.
