SYNOPSIS

16-year-old Milla is the kind of girl one might envy: comfortably middle-class, goes to a private all-girls’ school, and doted upon by two loving and liberal parents. Except that Milla has been diagnosed with cancer. Now, the only thing she wants to do with her numbered days is make the kind of choices a girl like her would typically disavow, beginning with falling head over heels for a tattooed and refreshingly brazen small-time drug dealer.

Quirky, dynamic and effortlessly poignant, Babyteeth starts out comically tragic but eventually finds its own pulse. This strong and stunning debut feature film from Shannon Murphy encourages us to celebrate the relationships we have while we are still deeply, achingly alive.
