If sci-fi murder mystery comedies set in the future are your thing, you'd do well to check out Heavy Nova playing at the Crossroads Cinema on Saturday night. The best part? It's written, directed by and starring Tucsonans!
I appreciate the Dark Star meets Outland vibe, and the humor looks to be slightly off-centerish. Co-writer and director Peter Leon is quoted as saying "Heavy Nova is a social commentary wrapped inside enough dick jokes to satisfy any 15-year-old boy." So, there you go.
Check out the NSFW trailer:
The show starts at 9:00 p.m. and tickets are $7. A Q&A with cast and crew follows the film. RSVP on Facebook here.
