Movie Info

KATI WITH AN I is an intimate documentary portrait of Kati, a teenage girl in Alabama, about to graduate high school.

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

Something universal and touching emerges about youth and hope, particularly in the clips of a shyly smiling child Kati, and in the intense, passionate love that teen Kati holds for James.

"Kati With an I" transforms one teenager's particular story into a moving portrait of Anygirl, U.S.A.

Robert Greene's documentary captures so many wonderfully delicate, private moments in Kati's life that it seems churlish to wish the film said more about what it's actually like to be a young woman today.

Greene may intend Kati's story as a quiet tragedy, but the native feeling of that's-just-the-way-it-is lethargy ("Only in Alabama can you be a home-school drop-out") is rather convincing.

Sensitive if somewhat messy.

In a way, Kati with an I is the Everyone Else of na´ve high school love stories, complete with two extended musical numbers and a suitably ambiguous ending.
