‘Riot Girls’ Film Review: Teens Battle It Out in a World Without Adults
Potter’s Bluff used to be a nice place to live. Idyllic, even. Then, we’re told during the comic-book-style intro to “Riot Girls,” a mysterious wasting disease all but destroyed the entire population — except the kids, that is.
