All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (11)

  • Torture porn is kinder to its victims than "Katie Says Goodbye" is to its heroine.

    Jun 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The point of this grim first film by writer-director Wayne Roberts is that lousy things happen to innocent people. But Katie is guileless to the point of stupidity.

    Rex Reed

    Top Critic
  • 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.

    Top Critic
  • 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.

    Sep 11, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's a powerfully evocative story with outstanding performances, beautiful dialogue, and most importantly, a lasting effect of optimism.
