Synopsis:
When seriously ill teenager Milla (Eliza Scanlen) falls in love with free-spirit Moses (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 family instead leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life.

Well acted and decent film - Babyteeth review by TH

Spoiler Alert
23/12/2020

This film had such a rave review that my expectations were high but it fell short for me. There is no denying that this is a well acted and at times engaging but as a whole it didnt feel to me to tread any new grounds. Wallace and Scanlen are really engaging in the lead roles but I felt like the parents were fairly cold throughout with little personality. The ending is really moving but I guess I was just hoping for something more.

Charming and sad - Babyteeth review by JB

Spoiler Alert
13/12/2020

This Australian movie from debut director Shannon Murphy is as charming and life-affirming as it is sad.

The radiant Eliza Scanlen from Greta Gerwig's Little Women plays Milla, a 16 year old girl diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her psychiatrist father (Ben Mendelssohn) and pill-addicted mother (Australian institution Essie Davis) are barely able to cope at the best of times, and threaten to come further off the rails when Milla gets involved with 20 year old dropout Moses (Toby Wallace). But the family's dawning realisation about Milla's limited time left challenges their usual parenting decision-making and Milla's last weeks prove to be pretty wild and inspiring.

Babyteeth is at its best when shining a light on the tensions within love and parenting, illness and life. The direct and generous performances from the top-notch cast tease out the humanity and contradictions within these themes and their character's relationships The script is occasionally a little cheesy (the Christmas scene towards the end is a script draft on from a TV movie of the week; there's also some pretty heavy-handed metaphor about addiction throughout). But the clear-eyed direction from Murphy and the great soundtrack paper over the cracks.

Babyteeth is a fantastic showcase for a talented director and amazing cast and, what's more, a moving, sincere and warm film about a teenage cancer experience, that's arguably better than the more well known The Fault in Our Stars.
