Yes, God, Yes hit Netflix in October of last year after premiering at SXSW 2019 and “hitting theaters” in July 2020. It falls firmly in our category of stuff we missed and are now catching up on. This endeavor has once again proven fruitful as we really liked Yes, God, Yes a lot. But oh boy is it AWKWARD.
It’s the story of a teenage girl growing up super religious and figuring out her sexuality. And by that I mean she’s trying to learn how to masturbate and finding herself in many awkward and foreign situations to her. At one point while watching this Kristin said aloud, “I don’t like this movie because I’m in it!” We were all right around the age Natalia Dyer was playing in the time she was playing it, 2001. An awkward time for all of us and the memories that came flying back were, ya know, mediocre at best. But it’s a time everyone has to go through in their lives and it’s beautifully realized here, awkward as it may be.
What did you think of Yes, God, Yes? Did it make you crawl out of your skin a bit like us? Or do you have nothing but fond memories of your changing body? Let us know over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! For now though, make sure your Nokia is charged, grab a broom and settle in for today’s exciting episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
