Women Lead the Way

Eliza Scanlen looks up at the sky in a blue wig

Eliza Scanlan (Little Women) is exceptional in this original coming-of-age drama about a teenager who deals with her illness and trauma with humanity and sweetness.

When seriously ill teenager Milla (Eliza Scanlan) falls in love with free-spirit Moses (Toby Wallace), it’s her parents, Henry (Ben Mendelsohn) and Anna’s (Essie Davis), worst nightmare. But as Milla’s first brush with love brings her a new lust for life, things get messy and traditional morals go out the window.

Milla shows everyone in her life - her parents, Moses, a sensitive music teacher, a budding child violinist, and a disarmingly honest pregnant neighbour - how to live like you have nothing to lose. What might have been a disaster for the family instead leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life.
