In the Sundance sex comedy The Little Hours, Giovanni Boccaccio’s 14th century novella collection The Decameron comes to life with raunchy results in the hands of Jeff Baena, who directs an ensemble cast that includes Dave Franco, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, and Kate Micucci — all of whom have received new character posters ahead of the upcoming project’s June 30 release date.
The film stars Franco as a servant who flees the clutches of his oppressive master (Nick Offerman), ultimately taking up residence with a convent of wild nuns (Plaza, Shannon, Brie, Micucci) in the campy interpretation of Boccaccio’s texts, which received positive reviews upon its world premiere in Park City earlier this year.
According to the Catholic League, however, The Little Hours “pure trash” — a criticism the movie proudly touts in its red band trailer above, which teases the unholy acts committed by the sisters, like rolling their eyes in confession, viciously berating townsfolk, having rampant sex, and threatening strangers with hatchets.
The Little Hours, which also stars Jemima Kirke, Fred Armisen, and Adam Pally, opens June 30 in limited release. Check out EW’s exclusive first look at the new character posters below.
