A new trailer has been released for a new coming-of-age teen sex comedy titled Yes, God, Yes. It stars Natalia Dyer, who plays Nancy on Stranger Things, and the film is a semi-autobiographical story that explores sexuality for one girl growing up in the Midwest.
The film comes from director Karen Maine (co-writer of Obvious Child), and this is the synopsis for the film:
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.
Yes, God, Yes premiered last year at SXSW, where it won a Special Jury Prize for Best Ensemble. It looks like it’ll be an entertaining movie and it will be released digitally on July 24th.
