Aubrey Plaza & Alison Brie Aren’t Your Average Nuns In ‘The Little Hours’ Trailer
Who was in charge of their postulancy?
There is a list of prerequisites you have to check off before becoming a nun: You must be Catholic, you must be single, you must be healthy, you must be in the 18-to-40 age range. In an upcoming film, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Micucci are all of those things, yes, but add rebellious, rowdy, and sex-hungry to that list, too.
The Little Hours, directed and written by Jeff Baena, is loosely based off of Giovanni Boccaccio’s medieval book, The Decameron. It follows the trio of sisters who live normal lives in a monastery led by Father Tommasso (John C. Reily). When a new employee shows up in their quarters (played by Dave Franco, Brie's real-life spouse), though, the deprived group “erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry,” as the synopsis explains.
So, yeah, these aren’t your typical nuns. This makes for a lot of sin, but also for a very entertaining film. Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Nick Offerman, and Jemima Kirke round out the star-studded cast. The whole gang arrives in theaters June 30.
