Look, if someone tells you there's an incredibly raunchy, R-rated nun comedy on the way starring Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Kate Micucci, Dave Franco, Fred Armisen and Nick Offerman, you probably know right then and there whether you're on board.
But let's say - for reasons I can't even begin to comprehend - you remain unconvinced that you need to see such a film. Please allow the first (extremely red-band) trailer for Jeff Baena's The Little Hours to help make that decision for you.
Say no more, The Little Hours. Say no more.
OK, fine, maybe give us a more detailed plot synopsis:
Medieval nuns Alessandra, Fernanda, and Ginevra 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 brings on newly hired hand Massetto, 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.
OK, and maybe let's revisit that glorious pull-quote from The Catholic League.
Admittedly, our own Meredith Borders wasn't super-hyped about this one at Sundance this year (click here to read her review), but I'm personally finding it hard to imagine a movie that's more in my wheelhouse than this one. And I'm willing to bet some of you feel the same way. How's my aim?
The Little Hours arrives on June 30th. Praise God.
