Babyteeth (Shannon Murphy, 2019). Unpredictable Aussie indie about a collection of odd people dealing with various issues. That could describe most Aussie indies, but Murphy and a sterling cast make this film fresh. Eliza Scanlon, Beth from Little Women, plays the central role, and the fine unit includes Ben Mendelsohn, Essie Davis (from The Babadook), and Toby Wallace. (full review 6/19)
