The Little Hours

Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie and Kate Micucci are repressed nuns in filmmaker Jeff Baena's (Joshy) take on Boccaccio's sex comedy, The Decameron.

Medieval nuns Alessandra (Brie), Fernanda (Plaza), and Ginevra (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 labourer. 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.

Jeff Baena's loose riff on "The Decameron" hilariously applies a contemporary sensibility to the medieval collection of bawdy tales.

It's often hysterically funny, especially when allowing its talented cast to play up to their individual strengths.

If the humour gets a bit one-joke - I wish Molly Shannon's Mother Superior, in particular, had more to do - "The Little Hours" is nonetheless a cohesive vision.

A winning ensemble brings present-day attitude to Boccaccio's irreverent sex comedy.
