This charming 1990s-set Irish romantic comedy centers on closeted high-schoolers Eddie (Fionn O’Shea) and Amber (Lola Petticrew), who hatch a perfect plan to get their bullies and families off of their backs — pretend to date each other and become each other’s beards!

“An absolute delight … funny and poignant with great performances.” – Diedre Molumby,

What follows is a funny, moving, and soul-searching film about growing up gay in a homophobic world. Featuring familiar faces such as Sharon Horgan (Game Night; Catastrophe), this tale of queer kinship features a wonderful sense of visual comedy, brilliant performances, and an outcast friendship dynamic reminiscent of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The rare teen comedy in which the gay best friends take center stage, Dating Amber shows that while fleeting romantic love is nice, sometimes the deep power of friendship can transform us most of all. (Dir. by David Freyne, 2020, Ireland, 92 mins., Not Rated)
