Cannes Film Festival 2016 Spotlight: Indie Sweetheart Stephanie Ellis


From Sundance to Cannes, Australian enchanter Stephanie Ellis has been hypnotic on screen and she’s been celebrated by IndieWire as an actress on the rise. The impeccably talented Stephanie will have us singing her praises once more in the dramatic short “Baby Teeth” which marks her directorial debut.

Here’s Stephanie describing more about her short “Baby Teeth”:

It’s a story that explores boundaries in multiple forms. Between friends, but also boundaries within ourselves, our minds, and our memories. How far can we stretch these boundaries before they warp and snap? My character, Sophie – is challenged as a friend, and the only support system for her friend. She is really drawn, and pulled into her friend’s world.

For Sophie, it’s more in what she keeps hidden — what assumptions about herself and others she keeps secret.

Do check out the official site: As you will discover, this is a multi-layered story about 2 women and their search for a missing baby which will test the limits of their bond. As Stephanie has shown in the gripping indie drama “The Sleepwalker” and her other short film “Molly”, she’s a cut above with moving depth when depicting complex women. There’s an innate dexterity about Stephanie when she elucidates the heterogeneous traits of the women she essays. Coupled with her gracious nature, our devotion for Aussie actresses is profoundly here to stay.
