Movie Info

Growing up in the Midwest in the early 00s, sixteen-year-old Alice 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 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 the retreat and meets an unlikely ally who offers an alternative view of what it means to be a good person. For the first time, Alice realizes she can decide for herself what to believe and finally gets the release she needs.

Top Critic

This is a story of teenage innocence and religious guilt, and it's told in a smart, warmhearted manner, without turning sarcastic or cruel.

July 31, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Maine's film captures something indelible about adolescent female desire, without condescending or objectifying, because she understands, subjectively, what that looks and feels like: all the confusion and shame, but yes, also the pleasure.

July 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Maine's semi-autobiographical tale strikes just the right notes over its 74-minute running time - and while the material may be objectionable to some, this Roman Catholic found it to be hilarious and engaging.
