“The kind of skittish, reckless film-making that makes you want to rush headlong into bad decisions and savour every last messy moment of the fallout.”
★★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

“Babyteeth is a profoundly moving tale of a young girl making the most of the time she has with her parents and lover, with stunning performances from Eliza Scanlen, Essie Davis, and Ben Mendelsohn.”
★★★★ Lewis Knight, Daily Mirror 

“A lovely, achey coming-of-age story that bursts with rare respect for its characters while tragedy peeks in through the curtains.”
★★★★ Debbie Zhou, The Guardian

“Love, death and the whole damn thing seen through the eyes of a teen played by the gifted Eliza Scanlen. Shannon Murphy's debut feature is a thing of beauty and terror that means to hit you hard - and boy, does it ever.”
★★★★ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“It's quirky, with a whip-smart script, and pulled off the double-whammy of making me, and everyone around me, laugh and then cry.”
★★★★ Kate Muir, Daily Mail


When seriously ill teenager Milla Finlay (Eliza Scanlen) falls in love with small-time drug dealer Moses (Toby Wallace), it's her parents' worst nightmare. But as Milla's first brush with love brings her a new lust for life, things get messy and traditional attitudes go out of the window. Milla shows everyone in her orbit – her parents, Moses, a sensitive music teacher, a budding child violinist, and a disarmingly honest pregnant neighbour – how to live like you have nothing to lose.
