Baby Teeth Overview

Zoje Stage’s Baby Teeth follows Suzette and Alex Jensen as they try to cope with their strange seven-year-old daughter Hanna’s aggressive behavior. Selectively mute and expelled from school after school for tormenting the other children, Hanna is considered a bad seed who refuses to conform to her parents’ upper-middle class expectations of her. As tension between Suzette and Hanna escalates, and both mother and daughter begin to question whether their family might be better off without the other. The gripping psychological thriller explores themes of communication, illness, isolation, childhood, the supernatural, and the nature of family.
