Film Review: ‘Just Say Goodbye’
Director Matt Walting’s “Just Say Goodbye” can trace its lineage to the old after-school specials that dealt with such evergreen topics as alcoholism, bullying, and suicide. However, this story about a physically and mentally abused teen who decides his only option for personal freedom is to commit suicide falls short in its delivery compared to those network-produced parables. This melodrama, released to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Month, lacks the necessary polish to elevate not just its message, but also the actors’ performances.

Sixteen-year-old Jesse Peterson’s (Max MacKenzie) life hasn’t been easy. When he was six, his mom overdosed on pills, leaving him in the care of his rage-filled father Rick (William Galatis), who made Jesse swear never to utter her name again and destroyed all photographic evidence of her. All Jesse has left is one small pocket-sized photo that he keeps with him at all times.
