Yes, God Yes is now on Netflix in the US

Happy Thursday and Netflix are once again bringing the goods with another seven new movies and documentaries on Netflix today. Here’s a complete roundup of what’s new today plus your daily look at what’s trending on the top 10 TV and movie lists.

Tomorrow, you’ve got another great slate of content to look forward to including Barbarians season 1, Over the Moon, and The Queen’s Gambit.

Fisherman’s Friends (2019)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Family, Music
Director: Chris Foggin
Cast: James Purefoy, Meadow Nobrega, David Hayman, Maggie Steed
Writer: Piers Ashworth, Meg Leonard, Nick Moorcroft
Runtime: 112 min

Looking for a British film? Netflix got today a movie that premiered in cinemas just last year.

Here’s what you can expect (although we do advise turning subtitles on for this one, the accents are quite harsh on the ears)

“Sea shanties have long united 10 Cornish fishermen, but when their chants sail to the music charts, their friendship is kept at bay.”

One of the YouTube comments perhaps summarizes this movie best when they say it’s like a warm, soft, cuddly blanket on a cold winters day. It’s an apt description.

Fans of Sense8 will also recognize Tuppence Middleton who plays Alwyn in this movie.

The Hummingbird Project (2018)

Genre: Drama, Thriller
Director: Kim Nguyen
Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek, Michael Mando
Writer: Kim Nguyen
Runtime: 111 min

An underrated thriller from 2 years ago also just dropped on Netflix today from writer and director Kim Nguyen.

The movie is about traders who go head-to-head to earn millions potentially with a new fiber-optic deal.

It’s star-studded and definitely is worth a watch.

Yes, God, Yes (2019)

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Director: Karen Maine
Cast: Natalia Dyer, Francesca Reale, Alisha Boe, Allison Shrum
Writer: Karen Maine
Runtime: 78 min

Featuring Stranger Thing’s Natalie Dyer this movie rocked critics last year with it currently sitting at an impressive 71/100 on Metacritic.

Here’s what you can expect from the throwback (if you’re a millennial anyway) movie:

“A devoutly religious teen grapples with her own sexual awakening, and attends a Catholic school retreat in the hopes of suppressing her newfound urges.”
