Critic Reviews for Katie Says Goodbye
The fact that the lead character is so utterly guileless and innocent and kindhearted -- she's essentially a smiley face with a "KICK ME" sign taped to her back -- makes Katie less a victim of the world and more a victim of writer-director Wayne Roberts.
Even if first-time writer-director Wayne Roberts is sympathetic to the plight he's chosen for the protagonist, his film never burrows deep enough under her skin to make the string of miserable scenarios connect in a meaningful way.
I think this is a film about a young girl, unfathomably naïve, who did things that girls who look like Olivia Cooke aren't supposed to do, and is severely punished for it. Katie Says Goodbye is a hateful film.
Katie isn't an easy watch, to be sure, but it's very well executed and deeply felt. And it's always a joy to see a film where the director is so obviously in love with his lead character.
