A24 has released the first trailer for their highly-anticipated drama film, Waves. 

From Trey Edward Shults, the film features an ensemble cast including Sterling K. Brown, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Renee Elise Goldsberry, Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie and Lucas Hedges. It premiered to critical acclaim at Telluride and heads to the Toronto International Film Festival this week.

The studio has given it a prime awards season release date of November 1.

Here’s the description: 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.
