Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci star as a trio of rowdy nuns in the first red band trailer for The Little Hours. Don’t let the 17th Century setting fool you, The Little Hours is an unexpectedly foul-mouthed comedy from Jeff Baena (Life After Beth).
The trailer starts with the cunning use of some of nice things that critics had to say following its screening at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. However, the first parade of F-bombs and cheeky behaviour swiftly follows.
“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.”
The Little Hours is currently without a UK release date, but the movie arrives in the US on June 30. Check out the NSFW trailer below.
