This film, at it's heart, is a love story and a story about dreams. It also explores the too-often neglected topic of sexual abuse in our society. It depicts an impoverished white American community in a genuine and sensitive way, through stunning imagery and wonderful performances by Olivia Cooke and Chris Abbott. The heart-wrenching twists and turns develop from an authentic tone and a unique directorial voice grounded in humanity. The discomfort we feel at times is a visceral response to the story's authenticity and our growing empathy for the main character, Katie. But stay with it! Especially during this precarious moment in American history, movies like Katie Says Goodbye shed light on the inner-workings of poverty and pinpoint the various reasons why we must care more for one another.
I found it one of the hardest films to watch that I have ever seen. Olivia Cooke as always was sensational. Her performance as the wounded bird doing her best to be nice and upbeat as she gets by in a poverty stricken Arizona town feels so real. With her dead beat mum doing nothing but drag her down it hits so many heart strings. Their drab live in their trailer home was so believable and you begin to care so much for Katie due to the performance of Olivia that when people treat her so badly it becomes more heart breaking as it goes. Yes it is harsh but its real not everyone lives a good life and this show how hard it is to be poor in any country not just the states and the things people do to get by in a broken life. I was an extra on The Limehouse Golem with Olivia so I know how small she is and that added to my discomfort and the urge to want to give her a hug.
This movie is a real life gritty drama. Katie (Olivia Cooke) and her Mother live in poverty and sell their bodies to make ends meet. Katie is saving up to move away from it all to California when she meets a man she falls in love with. Simple story but a very important one, I fear this is every day life for more young women than we realise. It's a movie not without some flaws but powerful and keeps you watching. Olivia Cooke shows us just how strongly talented she Is in this very tricky role. Just recently in my own life I've been faced with moving away to the other end of the world alone and starting life for myself and it's not an easy task. So there were parts to this movie I could relate to. Katie is more decent than the majority of people despite what she does to earn extra money, good morals and kindness, willing to take the blame for things she didn't do. 8/10 CJR
Movie was good but Katie ohhhh Katie. Like girl, you need a reality check . She made one bad decision after the other it was so uncomfortable to watch . She was practically a living door mat . Even the end leaves you thinking, ohhhh Katie didn't you learn your lesson !!!
Well. What a film and what a performance by Olivia Cooke. Such a gentle creature as portrayed and yet the world vomits on her eiderdown. I would cheerfully kill those people who were so cruel to her and yet her spirit seems to be unbroken, depending on how you interpret the ending. Sensitively written and directed and good acting by all - it has to be if, as I did, you feel that you'd like to punch many of them in the face. When you want to see a a sad but accurate view of the cruelty of mankind here's a brilliant example. In the same class as Monster with Theron and Ricci. Memorable
