Event on 2017-07-21 19:00:00
Based on a comic tale from Boccaccio's 14th century Italian masterpiece 'The Decameron,' the director of 'Life After Beth' and 'I Heart Huckabees' casts some of today's funniest comic actors (Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, John C. Reilly, Kate Micucci, Molly Shannon, Jemima Kirke & more) as the repressed medieval nuns, priests, lords, and ladies whose lives are upended by a handsome, bewildered young farmhand (Dave Franco). "A riotous medieval-era sex romp played with lunatic conviction by a great cast…The feeling behind the original tales – their rambunctious earthy humor—is alive and well in Baena's film, as is the feeling that the sex-drive—the cause of so much distress in the world—is not just evidence of life, it IS life." – rogerebert.com "A hilariously irreverent romp that seems to be channeling some of the spirit of 'Monty Python’s Life of Brian,' as well as the youthful feminine angst of 'Heathers.' And there’s even a dash of Mel Brooks about some of the lunacy." – The Wrap "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." – Vulture SYNOPSIS: 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… Rated R, 90 minutes. ***Please note that NO OUTSIDE DRINKS OR FOOD are allowed inside Richards' Goat Tavern for legal reasons and violators of this rule may be banned from the theatre permanently.
