“Matches a crackling wit with the absurd dissonance of time and place found in the best of Monty Python and Mel Brooks.”
– Eric Kohn, INDIEWIRE

“Jeff Baena’s loose riff on ‘The Decameron’ hilariously applies a contemporary sensibility to the medieval collection of bawdy tales.”
– Peter Debruge, VARIETY  

“A surprisingly shrewd reflection on the age-old tension between devotion and desire.”

“A playfully absurd medieval comedy.”


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.
