LA Film Festival Review: The Little Hours Features An All-Star Comedic Cast

The Little Hours is probably going to be the strangest movie many people will see this year, but it will no doubt have audiences laughing.

Massetto (Dave Franco) is on the run from his master and finds a convent full of crazy nuns for refuge.

It takes place in Italy during the Middle Ages, but it has a modern twist when it comes to the language. They used contemporary American slang instead of having everyone do an accent. It’s not common for comedies to be very cinematic but the director and writer, Jeff Baena, took advantage of Italy’s beauty.

The entire cast was amazing; it says a lot about their ability when the entire movie was improvised. There was a direction that they had to follow but other than that it was mainly up to the actors. That’s not an easy job so hats off to them for a job well done.

It was fun to watch and the cast said they had a blast filming it, which really showed in their performances. The Little Hours is the kind of movie that you watch when you’re looking for a good laugh and don’t want to think about anything else.

It’s best to go into this film without knowing too much about it, because it will probably start to not make any sense. But somehow everything just comes together so well, and it makes for an enjoyable experience. I’d say, just go see it for yourself and be pleasantly surprised.
