Critic Reviews for Katie Says Goodbye

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

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.

Wayne Roberts' powerfully low-key drama gets under the skin.

Sep 11, 2016 | Full Review…

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.

We've seen many "hookers with a heart of gold" stories before, but none like this.

Feb 6, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 20, 2017 | Full Review…

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.
