  • After surviving a car crash that kills both their parents, two teen girls, embittered by years of abuse, walk happily away from the wreckage and into what they hope will be a life of adventure together--with "no boys." But before you can say "coming of age," the sisters take refuge at a nearby Army base, where one learns the ways of love from a civilian groundskeeper and the other learns the ways of killing from a soldier. A disturbing and offbeat independent feature from first-time writer-director Ogrodnik, unrated during its festival run and limited theatrical release.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Remarkable....A powerful exploration of female puberty....Bolstered by tough, utterly unselfconscious central performances, RIPE plunks you into the heart of a raw, sensual world..."
    New York Times

    "...A compelling fable of all-American sex and violence, death and desire..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...A darkly offbeat first feature....While imparting an edgy contemporary quality, lifted by exceptionally natural turns by Keena and Eagan, it imparts the feel of a '40s nostalgia film..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
