Jeff Baena’s THE LITTLE HOURS is one of the most unique comedies to check out this year.

Based on the tale from The Decameron, Baena adapted the stories of sexually charged nuns in a forest into a comedy classic today.

Here’s the synopsis:

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 film also stars Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Jemima Kirke and Nick Offerman.

THE LITTLE HOURS is currently playing in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles today. It will be released nationwide at a later date.
