‘Yes, God, Yes’ Trailer: Natalia Dyer Is A Catholic Girl Discovering The Joys Of Internet Porn

While movies about teens growing up and learning about sex are a dime a dozen, they get a new wrinkle when religion is thrown into the mix. For my money, the best movie tackling this from a Catholicism angle is Saved!, but perhaps the new film Yes, God, Yes can give it a run for its money.

Starring Stranger Things’ actress Natalia Dyer, Yes, God, Yes is about a Catholic high school girl who discovers the joys of internet porn and indulges a little too frequently…while at the same time fearing that God is judging her for it.

If he exists, he probably is. Just sayin’.

The film is written and directed by Karen Maine in her directorial debut, and co-stars Timothy Simons, Wolfgang Novogratz, Francesca Reale, Susan Blackwell, Parker Wierling, Alisha Boe, and Donna Lynne Champlin.

Yes, God, Yes opens July 24th, then hits VOD on July 28th.

SYNOPSIS: In the Midwest in the early 00s, sixteen-year-old Alice (Natalia Dyer) has always been a good Catholic girl. But when an AOL chat turns racy, she discovers masturbation and becomes guilt-ridden. Seeking redemption, she attends a mysterious religious retreat to try and suppress her urges, but it isn’t easy, especially after a cute boy (Wolfgang Novogratz) starts flirting with her. Alice’s sense of shame is spiraling when she uncovers a shocking truth about the retreat’s most devout. Desperate and confused, she flees and meets an unlikely ally (Susan Blackwell) who offers an alternative view of what it means to be good. For the first time, Alice realizes she can decide for herself what to believe and finally gets the release she needs.
