Writer/director Trey Shults’ Waves can only be described as an innovative and intense kaleidoscope of emotions, energy, and vibrancy that resonates with audiences long after it’s over. It hits hard…like a massive tsunami of feels. Seriously, it’s This Is Us x 1000.

Waves is the perfect title for this family drama set on the beautiful South Florida coast. The 31-year-old Shults offers a complex story of a family going through something very traumatic all while portraying the multidimensional impacts of their actions over the course of three acts, and Shults truly deserves some awards recognition this season for this beautiful film about the human experience...
