‘Dating Amber’ is a bittersweet coming-of-age and coming-out romantic dramedy in which two closeted teens act as each other’s beards in order to deflect bullies at school and nosy parents at home. Written and directed by David Freyne, this poignant tale of two friends who just get each other is set in mid-1990s’ Ireland. The good-natured and emotionally moving film stars Fionn O’Shea as gay but in-denial Eddie and Lola Petticrew as his bright-haired lesbian counterpart Amber. Curious to know more about the plot of ‘Dating Amber’ and where to stream it? We’ve got you covered.
What is Dating Amber About?
Eddie has not even admitted to himself that he’s gay, much less to the world, and he believes that joining the Irish Army after school will “make the problem go away”. Amber knows she’s different than most of her peers and looks forward to the day when she can move to London and open an anarchist bookshop. As a cover to avoid suspicion and speculation about their sexuality, Eddie and Amber decide to date each other until high school gets over. But things don’t go as smoothly as planned, especially when Amber decides to accept her homosexuality much sooner than Eddie.
