BRAVE NEW JERSEY is a comedy about a small, New Jersey town on the night of Orson Welles’s legendary, 1938 War of the Worlds radio broadcast — the hoax that terrified millions into believing Martians were invading America. As the citizens of Lullaby, NJ face what they think is their last night on Earth, their lives will change forever. An alien invasion movie where the aliens never show up.
“A sweet story of true love and emotional awakenings.”
