Actor Kelvin Harrison Jr. (Luce, It Comes at Night) joins q host Tom Power live in studio to talk about his role in the new film Waves. It's an intimate drama about family, being a parent, being a teenager, toxic masculinity and the expectations we place on one another. Harrison explains what he took from the role, and how months of very personal conversations with director Trey Edward Shults brought the story to life.    

Waves is out this Friday in Toronto and then across Canada on Friday, Dec. 6.
