The Guardian has reviewed The Little Hours and gave the movie 3 out 5 stars. I can’t wait to see this movie!
Read the review and watch the trailer below:
Rather like 2011’s Your Highness, the initial gimmick proudly, even boastfully, revealed in The Little Hours is based on the notion that medieval characters can be just as puerile as their contemporary counterparts. Within seconds of the titles ending, 14th-century nuns are swearing, shouting, vandalizing and attacking any local man naive enough to look their way. But the test here – and it’s one that Danny McBride’s misjudged comic fantasy failed at – is whether the film can sustain itself beyond mere shock value.
It’s Garfagnana, 1347 and at a remote convent, where three young nuns are all struggling with the restrictions of their setting. Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza) is sour-faced, curse-spewing and trouble-making; Alessandra (Alison Brie) has been forced by her rich father to choose a life of embroidery and celibacy over romance; and Geneva (Kate Micucci) is a sexually confused and desperately bored gossip. After handsome young gardener Massetto (Dave Franco) starts working alongside them, their behavior spirals out of control.
It’s difficult not to gain at least a smidgen of pleasure from seeing Plaza – finally finding her big-screen footing with this and pitch-black Instagram comedy Ingrid Goes West – as a foul-mouthed nun causing mayhem. It’s hardly a stretch, playing into her skill for eye-rolling comic turns, but she remains for now an unusually compelling presence, her constant death stare and endless flow of fucks wonderfully contrasted with the primness of her habit.

Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke married for the second time on Saturday, June 24th, and they were surrounded by family and friends this time around. The happy couple originally got married back in February earlier this year but they planned a reception over the weekend in order to have everyone present.
Over the weekend Domino and Jemima took several photos and a short snapvideo and posted on Instagram and Twitter. Jemima captioned one of the photos with “You only get married twice, once.” – view the photos and the video below.
So we at Jemima Kirke Source want to say congratulations to Dimono and her husband again! May they have a long and happy life together!
An interview by Gold Derby from two days ago (May 15) and Jemima talks about the end of ‘Girls,’ her favorite moments from the series and Lena Dunham. She chats about ‘free falling’ on the first day six years ago and being ‘overwhelmed’ on the final day. Her last scene was the penultimate episode of the series and featured Kirke’s character Jessa at a party with the other girls (Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet, Allison Williams).
Jemima was interviewed by W Magazine about her plans after Girls ending and about her work as an artist. They also took some lovely photos of Jemima herself as well as her studio in Brooklyn. View them here!
“I’ll sit here so I don’t get in trouble for smoking,” Jemima Kirke said on a recent morning, adjusting her paint-streaked apron so she could plop down onto a cushion by the window in her studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn. She lit an American Spirit, turned down the opera music a notch, and, having granted me entry by pushing a gigantic portrait of Allison Williams in her wedding dress away from the door, suggested I take an armchair where a wall used to stand before she and her studio-mate moved in.

Here is some photos from Jemima’s guest appearance on New York is Dead. Hopefully the episode will be made available for us soon!
