Variety - Guy Lodge
Babyteeth works best as an abrasive four-hander, though Murphy’s limber, sensually electric direction leaves the film with little clear evidence of its theatrical origins.
Chicago Tribune - Katie Walsh
Murphy isn't afraid to play with color and light and text and music, or to let her characters dance like no one is watching, and often. That energy, embodied in the filmmaking and in the performances, is what puts this coming-of-age film into a class all its own.
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Babyteeth is the kind of soft-hearted tearjerker that does everything in its power to rescue beauty from pain.
The Playlist - Christina Newland
Given the subject matter, it’s difficult not to stray into mawkishness of some kind. But even with mistakes, the power of the main narrative is hard to erode.
The Film Stage - Rory O'Connor
Like the ramshackle family it so fondly depicts, Babyteeth is not without its flaws but it does suggest a confident new voice in independent cinema.
