While promoting her new film THE LITTLE HOURS, Aubrey Plaza popped by Cut’s series “Strange Buds” to spread the good word about cannabis with the Sisters of the Valley. Devoted to the medicinal and spiritual healing powers of the herb, the nuns run a self sustained convent that grows and sells marijuana-based products.
THE LITTLE HOURS
Written and Directed by Jeff Baena
Based on “The Decameron” by Giovanni Boccaccio
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.
