In the irreverent, all-star comedy The Little Hours, medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza) and Genevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent.
“Unapologetically raunchy … a twisted nuns-gone-wild comedy.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another and berating the estate’s day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery explodes in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse and wicked revelry. Also starring Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Jemima Kirke, Nick Offerman and Adam Pally, this riotous romp from writer/director Jeff Baena (co-writer of I Heart Huckabees, writer/director of Life After Beth and Joshy) transfers modern-day comic energy to the Middle Ages with hilariously foul-mouthed results. (Dir. by Jeff Baena, 2017, USA, 90 mins., Rated R)
