The Little Hours directed by Jeff Baena has released the red band trailer, and immediately you will see why Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League proclaimed “It is trash. Pure trash.” Good funny trash, that is.  The film which premiered earlier this year at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival will be release in select cities on June 30th, followed by a national rollout.

In The Little Hours, 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, Adam Pally and Nick Offerman.
