Summary

When struggling single mother has her baby abducted, she teams up with another woman to figure out how to get their children back from an illegal adoption ring.

Industry Reviews

SWEET TOOTH is a grim and gritty story that has an interesting and contentious message. Currently, it feels slightly condemnatory and judgemental, but if we see the film more from Sylvie’s perspective and develop her internal arc, then Sylvie could be shown as more of a heroine, sacrificing her need to be a mother for what she perceives to be the best interests of her child. This would turn her more into a hero and make her less of a character to...

Overall, the base concept of the missing child is really anything especially innovative, but the additions of the battle with addiction and actually seeing the daily lives of the kidnappers is what makes the concept work. But what really makes this screenplay what it is, is the execution of the story. The story flows really well and scenes are written really well. There is just enough description to get a good feel for the plot without too much t...
