Katie Hangs Tough
27 December 2019 | by tigerfish50See all my reviews

Katie waitresses at a remote Arizona roadside diner and lives in a mobile home with her depressed deadbeat mom, who spends the rent money on booze. Instead of being overwhelmed by these difficult circumstances, Katie has set her sights on moving to San Francisco to become a beautician. In order to realize this dream, she supplements her meager wages and tips by prostituting herself to local citizens and passing truckers - and keeps her savings from these encounters in a shoe-box under her bed.

Katie is resilient and buoyant to a degree which stretches credulity, but Olivia Cooke does extraordinary work to keep her believable and sympathetic. Meanwhile director Wayne Roberts extracts fine performances from the rest of his cast. Despite her upbeat personality, Katie has made both friends and enemies in town - and when she falls in love with a taciturn ex-jailbird mechanic and quits selling her body, they show their true colors. The script piles troubles onto Katie's shoulders as her altered lifestyle becomes the catalyst for serious trouble. The subsequent events are a tough watching experience - but the excellent acting, direction and cinematography make it well worthwhile.
