IFC has released a new trailer and poster for Shannon Murphy‘s feature directorial debut, Babyteeth, a coming of age film starring Eliza Scanlen, Toby Wallace, Emily Barclay, Eugenes Gilfedder, Essie Davis, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Scanlen plays an ill teenager who falls for a drug dealer, much to the chagrin of her parents.
Babyteeth is set to hit VOD platforms (and theaters if they’re open) June 19th.
BABYTEETH is the powerful, coming-of-age feature debut from Shannon Murphy (“Killing Eve” Season 3). When seriously ill teenager Milla (Eliza Scanlen) falls madly in love with small-time drug dealer Moses (Toby Wallace), it’s her parents’ (Essie Davis and Ben Mendelsohn) worst nightmare. But as Milla’s first brush with love brings her a renewed lust for life, traditional morals go out the window, leaving her parents wanting to hold tighter to their little girl. Milla soon teaches everyone in her orbit – her parents, Moses, a sensitive music teacher, a budding child violinist, and a disarmingly honest, pregnant neighbor – 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. BABYTEETH joyously explores how good it is to be alive and how far we will go for love. BABYTEETH had its World Premiere in competition at the Venice Film Festival in 2019 where actor Toby Wallace won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor.
