Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Micucci star in a new movie together, and today the trailer was released. Titled The Little Hours, the film premiered at Sundance earlier this year and also stars John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Dave Franco, Adam Pally, and Nick Offerman. Here’s the full logline:
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 movie is written/directed by Jeff Baena, who also co-wrote 2004’s I Heart Huckabees and wrote/directed 2016’s Joshy, and premieres in select theaters June 30th.
