USA | 2017 | 90 minutes | Jeff Baena

Fleeing the estate of his burly, mustachioed boss after being caught with his wife, servant-boy Massetto (Dave Franco, Neighbors) finds himself in what he assumes is the safest place around—the local convent. Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) sets him up with a job as a handyman, persuading him to pretend to be deaf and mute so that the resident nuns won't be bothered by him. But these sisters are restless, bored, and lascivious, and before you know it, habits are thrown in a scramble to seduce the goofy, gardening stranger. Jeff Baena (Joshy, Life After Beth) directs this 14th-century medieval raunch-com, complete with swearing, Valley-girl nuns, a Monty Python sensibility, and filmed on location in the villages of Tuscany. The Little Hours boasts one of the most impressive comic casts to date: featuring Aubrey Plaza ("Parks & Recreation"), Alison Brie ("Community"), and Kate Micucci ("The Big Bang Theory") as the catty young sisters, Molly Shannon as Mother Superior, and Jemima Kirke ("Girls") as a witchy woman of the woods. Nick Offerman ("Parks & Recreation"), Adam Pally ("The Mindy Project"), Paul Reiser ("Stranger Things"), and Fred Armisen ("Portlandia") also join the cast for this raucous, old-timey romp that delighted audiences at Sundance earlier this year.

Director Biography

Baena co-wrote Fox Searchlight's I Heart Huckabees with David O. Russell. His directorial debut, Life After Beth, premiered in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
