‘One of the most touching and hilarious Irish films.’

Irish Independent

A poignant and funny look at the highs and lows of teenage life, where the only way to fit in is to not be yourself.

In a small country town in 1990’s Ireland, anxious Eddie and his more assured schoolmate Amber decide to stage a relationship to stop everyone speculating about their sexuality. Eddie is keen to follow his Dad into the military, while Amber dreams of moving to the liberal hub of London. Their ‘ideal’ arrangement begins to fall apart, forcing Eddie deeper into denial as Amber realises that a perilous future awaits Eddie unless she intervenes.

Dating Amber is David Freyne’s love letter to all those kids who grew up in a small town and needed to escape in order to be themselves. The two charming leads shine in a coming out and coming-of-age comedy crafted with style, salty, laugh-out-loud wit and emotional honesty.
