A poignant, honest and funny look at the highs and lows of teenage life where the only way to fit in is to not be yourself, even if this goes against your very being. In the vein of critically acclaimed SING STREET and the Netflix sensation, SEX EDUCATION. Set-in Ireland during the mid-90’s, Eddie and Amber are in the closet about their sexuality and decide to stage a relationship in order to stop everyone speculating. 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.
Directed by David Freyne. Starring Fionn O'Shea, Lola Petticrew.
