Meet The Little Hours cast with seven new character posters
Written and directed by Jeff Baena (Joshy, Life After Beth), The Little Hours is based on Giovanni Boccacio’s The Decameron, pairing an all-star comedy cast against a medieval backdrop. You can meet The Little Hours cast with a series of new character posters, all of which are viewable in the gallery below.
The Little Hours follows medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci), who 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 Little Hours cast also includes Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Jemima Kirke, Nick Offerman, Adam Pally, Jon Gabrus and Lauren Weedman.
Gunpowder & Sky will open The Little Hours in New York and LA on June 30th. Check back next week, too, as we’ll be bringing you video interviews with Jeff Baena and his Little Hours cast.
