Three nuns’ lives get disrupted when a young servant who is fleeing from his master arrives at their convent in The Little Hours, the Sundance comedy written and directed by Jeff Baena. Gunpowder & Sky, which acquired the film at this year’s festival, unveiled the first decidedly NSFW redband trailer for the comedy starring Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Dave Franco.
The Little Hours follows medieval nuns gone wild Alessandra (Brie), Fernanda (Plaza) and Ginevra (Kate Micucci). Per the film’s description, 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 (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.
Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Jemima Kirke, Nick Offerman and Adam Pally co-star.
Produced by Liz Destro and Plaza, the comedy – which will roll out to at least 50 markets – is Gunpowder & Sky’s widest release yet.
The Little Hours arrives in theaters June 30. Check out the trailer above.
