THE LITTLE HOURS OPENING AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER
Starting on August 18th the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present THE LITTLE HOURS, a risqué comedy set within a 14th-century Italian convent.
Based on two tales from Boccaccio’s “Decameron”, the film follows the humorously sinful adventures of a group of nuns in the countryside of late medieval Tuscany. When Massetto (Dave Franco) flees from the brutal lord (Nick Offerman) he has cuckolded, he is offered refuge as a handyman by the drunkard Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly). To resist tempting the nuns, he is instructed to pose as a deaf-mute. This ruse does not last long as the sisters are immediately attracted to the handsome new face. The outstanding cast is led by Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci as sisters seeking release from the strictures of their austere existences. [2017, USA, Runtime: 90 minutes, Rated: R].
Michael Phillips of “The Chicago Tribune” praises THE LITTLE HOURS for its, “blithely raunchy tone.” Brian Tallerico of “RogerEbert.com” calls it, “hysterically funny, especially when allowing its talented cast to play up to their individual strengths.” Beneath the humor is a frank depiction of the liberation of female desire rarely shown on screen in such an entertaining way.
Screening times are 4:00 pm on Friday (Aug 18), 7:00 pm on Saturday (Aug 19), 4:00 pm on Sunday (Aug 20), 7:00 pm on Monday (Aug 21), 4:00 pm on Tuesday (Aug 22), 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Wednesday (Aug 23), and 7:00 pm on Thursday (Aug 24). Tickets can be purchased at the Cinema Art Theater, starting 30 minutes prior to each screening. Admission for a screening is $8 for RBFS members and $10 for future members. All screenings are held at the Cinema Art Theater located at 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza, behind the Lewes Wawa.
