Babyteeth

Babyteeth ★★★★½

"Babyteeth is ostensibly about a dying teenage girl who falls in love for the first time, but what it's about is different from what it actually is. What it is is a story about four people dealing with the unexpected in their lives, be it cancer, loss, love. The characters sometimes face the unexpected with grace, and sometimes with the opposite of grace. They act out, throw tantrums, push each other away. They fumble, make mistakes, apologize badly, self-medicate (or over-medicate). Through all of this is a poignant sense of people grappling with the intangibles of life, life's ephemeral experiences and textures, the moments between the lines that make life worth living."


Just another life to live
Just a word to say
Just another love to give
And a diamond day
