Tyler (Harrison Jr) is a high-school senior with a star spot on the wrestling team, an adoring girlfriend and an affluent middle-class home. Yet bubbling pressures, including the high expectations of his domineering father and a gnawing shoulder pain he just can’t shake, slowly cause his bright future to unravel. This complex and devastating family melodrama is fuelled by an array of raw and intense performances, including Euphoria’s Alexa Demie as Tyler’s girlfriend, and an unforgettable Sterling K Brown as his father. An eclectic soundtrack fused with vivid camerawork firmly establishes Shults (It Comes at Night) as one of contemporary cinema’s most exciting new voices.
