Oldham’s own Olivia Cooke follows up her break out role in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl with a magnetic performance in Katie Says Goodbye. Cooke plays Katie, a seventeen-year old in the American Southwest who prostitutes herself to local men in the hope of making enough money to escape her mundane existence.
Katie Says Goodbye represents Independent American Cinema at its most electric as Wayne Roberts Directs this wistful and poignant portrayal of life in the middle of the American nowhere. Recalling the haunting beauty of Terrence Malick Katie Says Goodbye is a poetic and beautiful film.
