Toby Wallace From The Society Won at Venice Film Festival
You may hate Campbell Elliott from The Society, but you’ve got to give it to Toby Wallace for being such a good actor. However, if you’re still not going to admit to his acting prowess, perhaps his win at the Venice Film Festival 2019 might convince you.
Toby Wallace Wins an Award at Venice Film Festival
In Babyteeth, Toby Wallace stars as Moses. He is the love interest of Eliza Scanlen’s Milla, a terminally ill teenager. Their relationship is a nightmare for Milla’s parents, but Milla teaches those in her orbit how to live like there is nothing to lose.
Wallace’s phenomenal acting as the teen drug lord won him the prestigious Marcello Mastroianni prize, awarded for outstanding performance by a young actor.
He is Grateful
It should come as no surprise that The Society actor took to his Instagram to show how grateful he is. After winning, Wallace shared a post from the night. In the caption, he writes,
So bloody honoured to receive the Marcello Mastroianni award at the Venice film festival for our film ‘Baby Teeth’. @labiennale Italy
