The Little Hours Red Band Trailer
The screenplay is based on the first tale of the third day in The Decameron, a collection on novellas by Giovanni Boccaccio.
“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.
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.”
Produced by Elizabeth Destro and Aubrey Plaza.
The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19.
The Little Hours is scheduled to be released on June 30, 2017.
