Katie Says Goodbye Reviews

We've seen many "hookers with a heart of gold" stories before, but none like this.
November 20, 2017
I think this is a film about a young girl, unfathomably na´ve, 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.

As brutal as Katie Says Goodbye may be to experience, one cannot help but commend Roberts' control over the viewer.
September 11, 2016
Everything Roberts wants to convey is obtrusively front and center, leaving little room for the viewer to have any interpretation for themselves.

September 11, 2016
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.
September 11, 2016
Wayne Roberts' powerfully low-key drama gets under the skin.
September 11, 2016
A luminous, heartbreaking performance from Olivia Cooke shines through every frame of Katie Says Goodbye.
September 11, 2016
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.
