What might have been a disaster for the Finlay family leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life.
When seriously ill teenager Milla (Eliza Scanlon – Little Women) falls madly in love with a smalltime drug dealer, Moses (Toby Wallace – Romper Stomper), it’s her protective parents’ (Ben Mendelsohn – Captain Marvel / Essie Davis – The Babadook) worst nightmare. Things get messy and morals go out the window as the lives of those around the family: a sensitive music teacher, a budding child violinist, a disarmingly honest pregnant neighbour become intertwined and Milla shows those in her orbit how to live like you have nothing to lose.
In a story about life, grief and the chaos of family, Babyteeth joyously explores how far we will go for love and how good it is to be alive.
Babyteeth will be released in Australian cinemas 23 July!
