Already a hit on gay-fest circuit, Georgie Girl is a natural sale to pubcasters everywhere. Pic’s gently amused tone, like that of its subject, should have no trouble disarming skeptical or even reactionary auds.
– Variety review by Ken Eisner, 6 January 2003
The idea for the documentary came to me in part because of Georgina's remarkable life story and personal charisma, but also because of the unlikely alliance between a conservative, rural electorate and a transgendered person of Māori descent who had been a sex worker and drug user. It made me reflect on my personal preconceptions of rural communities, and perhaps revisit some of my own prejudices. Of course, Georgina won by a wide margin and became the first transsexual to be voted into national office in the world.
– Annie Goldson, in a 2003 interview for the film's screening on American network PBS
