Movie Info

Dating Amber is a poignant yet hilarious look at the highs and lows of teenage life where the only way to fit in is to not be yourself. Set in Ireland during the mid-90's, two closeted teenagers, Eddie and Amber, decide to stage a relationship in order to stop everyone speculating about their sexuality. Eddie is keen to follow his Dad into the military, while Amber dreams of moving to liberal London. However, their 'ideal' arrangement begins to fall apart, forcing Eddie deeper into denial as Amber realizes that a perilous future awaits her best friend unless she intervenes. Dating Amber is a love letter to all those kids who grew up in a small town and who needed to escape in order to be themselves.

Finally, Freyne has given us a romantic comedy in which the gay best friends are the leads, and it's all the richer for it.

[A] cute and quasi-autobiographical rom-com set in Ireland in the mid-1990s.

For me, this needed a bit more of an original spark.

Sweet but crude coming-of-age comedy ponders teen sexuality.

July 9, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Very well-played, with sharply-drawn characters, believable situations...

June 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Mixing jagged humour with warmly honest undercurrents of emotion, this sharp Irish drama knowingly explores the subtle bigotry that only the vulnerable can even see.
