About the Babyteeth 💬

  • Based on the stageplay.

BABYTEETH is based on a play by Australian playwright and actress Rita Kalnejais, first performed to a sell-out season at the Belvoir Street Theatre in Sydney in 2012.

When seriously ill teenager Milla (Eliza Scanlen) falls madly in love with smalltime 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 morals to go out the window. Milla soon 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.

BABYTEETH joyously explores how good it is not to be dead yet and how far we will go for love.


My ambition with BABYTEETH was to find a cinematic language to match the peculiar tone of irreverence and sentiment in Rita Kalnejais' whip-smart script. I was inspired by the challenge of harmonizing this duality of humor and pain in every frame of the film. There could be nothing tentative in my approach in order to authentically represent our protagonist Milla, who at 15 is at the precipice of feeling more alive than she's ever felt, yet abruptly facing her own mortality. The film language involves stylized disruptions through text, music and breaking the fourth wall which allow us to shift and move at Milla's accelerated pace. She falls in love with Moses, who she sees as an opportunity to push boundaries in an extreme way. As we dig deeper into Milla's parents lives we uncover the dysfunction and complicated tensions that exist as this family face their worst nightmare. They are stripped back to their rawest forms. I hope audiences have a visceral experience watching BABYTEETH, one they feel deep in their bones that allows them to ache for and celebrate their own relationships.
