Babyteeth (2020) now viewable on iTunes

Australian made Movies for summer

Summer during the lock down demands content. Let some original Australian content fill your days… because we have to do something when we are working from home right?

When seriously ill teenager Milla falls madly in love with smalltime drug dealer Moses, 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 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. The film joyously explores how good it is not to be dead and how far we will go for love.

Starring Eliza Scanlen, Ben Mendelsohn, Toby Wallace, Emily Barclay, Eugene Gilfedder and Essie Davis.
