To say this is an irreverent comedy would be an understatement. There’s filthy conversation, lustfulness, homosexuality, threesomes, infidelity, apostasy and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Think Monty Python films but with a lot more swearing.
Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent. 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 (Nick Offerman). Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry.
Molly Shannon, Jemima Kirk and Adam Pally also star in the comedy. The Little Hours hits select theaters on June 30. Check out the red band trailer below.
