Trey Edward Shults' WAVES is a film that stays with you for days. The young actors are exceptional in dramatic roles. Kelvin Harrison Jr. ("Godfather of Harlem") Taylor Russell ("Lost in Space") and Alexa Demie (HBO's "Euphoria") discuss with CineMovie why these type of roles are rare for actors of color. Watch below.
WAVES follows the emotional journey of a suburban African-American family - led by a domineering father (Sterling K. Brown) who puts the pressure on his eldest to be the best in everything he does while navigating high school sports and his love life.
