      Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya Autostraddle Girls State isn’t quite the explosive takedown and critique of the program that it could be, but it does explore the program's limitations cogently... Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) The politics lean conservative, but the transformations that occur go beyond ideology. Apr 18, 2024 Full Review Peter Rainer FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I wish there had been a little bit more of the get-togethers so we could hear them talk a little more informally, but it's a fascinating movie. Apr 17, 2024 Full Review Loren King Newport This Week (RI) [There's a] smart, impassioned, high stakes spirit that perme­ates the new documentary, Girls State. May 2, 2024 Full Review Joe Lipsett Hazel & Katniss & Harry & Starr Podcast Girls State feels slight and surprisingly unaware; even its own subjects seem determined to break free of the narrative that the camp and the directors are trying to box them in to. Compared to Boys State, this is a surprising misfire. Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 30, 2024 Full Review Stephen A. Russell AEU News The would-be Hilary Clintons and Kamala Harrises immediately clock that they’re held to different standards than the boys. Apr 28, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

      Tom F Like the earlier Boys State, it’s consistently interesting but never really pops. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/11/24 Full Review Melissa B Ready to get mad?? The documentarians did a great job of centering the girls involved in Girls State while also pointing out blatant discrepancies in the program. The girls in the film were excellent. I'm mostly infuriated at the system they were operating within. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/25/24 Full Review Jorge C Mientras que Boys State me hizo temer y lamentar por cómo se maneja la política en Estados Unidos, ni se diga en México; con Girls State demostró que a pesar de ser un programa para empoderar a las mujeres y de mostrar lo capaces que son para la política, se autosabotea aun poniendo muros para que una mujer no pueda tener una voz propia en la política, lo cual, sigue mostrando la cruda realidad y de igual manera, es de temerse y lamentarse. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Scott G The film is must watch for all audiences, brave, compelling, outspoken, no cotton candy here, hopeful Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
