Picturehouse Entertainment has released the first trailer for ‘Babyteeth’ featuring Eliza Scalan and Ben Mendelsohn.
When seriously ill teenager Milla Finlay (Eliza Scanlan) falls in love with free-spirit Moses (Toby Wallace), it’s her parents, Henry (Ben Mendelsohn) and Anna’s (Essie Davis), worst nightmare. But as Milla’s first brush with love brings her a new lust for life, things get messy and traditional morals go out 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. What might have been a disaster for the Finlay family instead leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life?
Based on scriptwriter Rita Kalnejais’ play of the same name and boasting an all-female production and direction team, Shannon Murphy makes her feature directorial debut.
The film is released in cinemas August 14th
