In this outrageous adaptation of Boccaccio’s The Decameron, we meet three medieval nuns (Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, & 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. Also starring Fred Armisen. (2017, Jeff Baena, US, 90 min, R, DCP)

“The movie is not camp. It’s deliciously deadpan sex farce played by some of the deftest clowns in the English-speaking world. The more matter-of-fact it is, the more screamingly funny.” -New York Magazine (Vulture)
