‘Dating Amber’ is a new coming-of-age Irish film starring Fionn O’Shea (Normal People) and Lola Petticrew (A Bump Along The Way). The two are hiding their sexuality as they go in their final year of secondary school and to do that without raising any suspicion, they decide to pretend to be a couple for all intents and purposes.
According to ‘Entertainment’, Director David Freyne said of his new film: “'Dating Amber' is as personal a film as I will ever make. It's my love letter to my home and for all those kids who needed to escape to be themselves. And at its heart are two extraordinary young stars, Fionn O'Shea and Lola Petticrew. I’m so excited to share it on Amazon Prime Video, to bring some laughter in these uncertain times and for everyone to fall in love with Eddie and Amber.”
The official synopsis for the movie is:
Set-in Ireland during the mid-90’s, Eddie (O’Shea) and Amber (Petticrew) 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 the liberal hub of London. However, their ‘ideal’ arrangement begins to fall apart, forcing Eddie deeper into denial as Amber realises that a perilous future awaits her best friend unless she intervenes.
The movie will be available on Amazon Prime next month.
