With high school graduation looming, Kati is just three days from entering the real world, and nothing seems to be going right. Her friends are saying goodbye, her parents are located hundreds of miles away and her fiance, James, is stuck in his mother's tight grip. Kati spends her last moments indulging in teenage folly — bad singalongs in the car, afternoon pool parties, arcade trips — and fighting with James and her parents about her life. As Kati grapples with her future, half-brother and director Robert Greene tag along, capturing gorgeous and incredibly intimate footage of two teenagers at a crossroads. Both a skillful portrait of teenage angst and a dreamlike meditation on the passing of youth, Kati With an I is a film to get lost in.
