The Trial of the Chicago 7 could not have been released at a more appropriate time. A movie about the system failing its people draws significant parallels today. This retelling of an important historical event reinvigorates the public consciousness’ push for social change. The Trial of the Chicago 7 is an other example of the impact we can have by making our voices heard.
This past week I got to speak to Kelvin Harrison Jr. on the phone about finding his voice, both as an actor and as an excellent singer in The High Note. As I say during the interview, I first found Kelvin watching It Comes at Night, and ever since then I knew he would capture his audience’s attention every chance he got. I just didn’t know he would do so by singing.

For lack of a better term, Trey Edward Shults has made huge waves as a filmmaker since he released his first film, Krisha. A wonderful new voice with a great eye (thanks to ever-brilliant Drew Daniels who also worked on Euphoria) could make a remarkable contained drama. Then Trey went and made It Comes at Night, and the world realized he can make a wonderful horror film as well. And then comes Waves, and I hope the world realizes like I do, that Trey can make a masterpiece.
