In Krisha and It Comes At Night, writer/director Trey Edward Shults detailed the inner workings of a family. Though It Comes At Night brought in a more supernatural and post apocalyptic element to the proceedings, both films were all about the ties that bind.
With Waves, Shults continues his exploration of family, this time focusing his story on a middle-class family in South Florida. Sterling K. Brown is Ronald, the hard driving but loving patriarch of the unit, with Renée Elise Goldsberry lending her own sense of nurturing as his wife Catherine. Tyler (Kelvin Harrison Jr., who starred in It Comes At Night) is their wrestler son and Emily (Taylor Russell) is his more introverted sister. The picture is receiving rave reviews, and although his previous films received their share of good notices, Waves may just be his cinematic breakthrough.

Waves, co-starring Lucas Hedges, hits theaters in November.
