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.
Loaded with comedic talent and written with an off-kilter, yet knowing
touch, The Little Hours is an immensely charming romp. Writer/director
Jeff Baena’s riotous follow-up to Sundance Film Festival favorites Life
After Beth and Joshy has transferred the nervy comedic energy from his
earlier work to the Middle Ages with hilarious results.
