Matt Neglia’s review published on Letterboxd:
BOYS STATE scared me. It empowered me. It filled me with hope, rage and emotion. And it did it all clearly and with a cinematic flair that will instantly hook you from the beginning all the way till the end. I really cared about all of these people even if I disagreed with them. Great change will only come if we work together and sometimes that work is messy. This documentary is such a great example of how our democracy can be if we all just listened to one another and actually tried.
