Yes, God, Yes

Strike Media are excited to be working with The Movie Partnership on Yes, God, Yes (cert 15), which is releasing on UK digital download platforms on August 17. This coming of age title, starring Stranger Things sensation Natalia Dyer and Alisha Boe (13 Reasons Why), tackles important questions about religion, sexuality and the struggles of going through high school in Midwest America in the early 00s.

Sixteen-year-old Alice (Natalia Dyer) has always been a good Catholic but when an innocent AOL chat turns racy, she discovers masturbation and is overwhelmed with guilt. Seeking redemption, she attends a mysterious religious retreat to try and suppress her urges but it isn’t easy, especially after a cute upperclassman (Wolfgang Novogratz) starts flirting with her.

This masterpiece from Karen Maine started life as a comic short in 2017 about the internet and masterbation. It has since been made into a full length feature following its monumental success and over 1.5 million views.
