The relationship with homeless drug dealer Moses is both a blessing to 16-year-old Milla and her parents’ worst nightmare. But even though he’s got no prospects in life and threatens to kill her mom, Moses brings Milla a sense of joy and confidence nobody else is able to give her. Featuring impressive performances by Eliza Scanlen, Toby Wallace and Ben Mendelsohn, BABYTEETH is a fresh, funny and unpredictable coming-of-age story from debut director Shannon Murphy, which has drawn comparisons with both AMERICAN BEAUTY and the FAULT IN OUR STARS.
