Babyteeth (2019)

Huge news, guys, HUGE NEWS! I’ve booked my first ticket for an actual screening in an actual cinema, praise! With Christopher Nolan’s Tenet set to mark my reintroduction to the wonderful world of the movie theatre on August 26th, we really are in the home straight of my extended home watching experience.
