Babyteeth is a 2019 Australian drama film directed by Shannon Murphy. The bittersweet comedy, adapted by Rita Kalnejais from her stage play of the same name, follows a couple who discover their seriously ill teenage daughter has fallen in love with a small time drug dealer. Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn, an Emmy winner for his role in the TV series Bloodline, returned to Australia to work for the first time in nine years for the film he calls "delightfully bent" and "beautifully Australian". Co-star Essie Davis describes the film as a beautiful story about the "chaotic world of trying to be the best parent you can and doing it badly and coping with trauma and confronting teenagedom and fighting for life".
