Alex Halpern in Nine Good Teeth

Nine Good Teeth

2003 NR

Mary Mirabito has nine good teeth, and that's a positive thing considering she's 104 years old and has lived through life's joys and tragedies large and small, coming out wiser and wittier on the other side. Documentary filmmaker Alex Halpern captures Mirabito's charm in this engaging film in which the Italian-American grandmother shares her memories and hard-won wisdom while retracing the defining moments of her life.
