Lionsgate will release A24’s family drama Waves through digital retailers Jan. 21, and on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Feb. 4.
The film tells the story of a high school wrestler named Tyler (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), who is on the verge of a full college scholarship under tremendous pressure from his domineering father (Sterling K. Brown). When Tyler is pushed to the brink, his actions threaten to tear his close-knit family apart, deeply affecting his younger sister (Taylor Russell), who is navigating her own path of growing up and falling in love. The cast also includes Reneé Elise Goldsberry, Lucas Hedges and Alexa Demie.
Written and directed by Trey Edward Shults (It Comes at Night), the film earned $1.6 million at the domestic box office.
Home video extras include a commentary with Shults and Harrison, deleted scenes, a Q&A with the director and cast, and the featurette “Creating Waves: The Truth in It All.”
