This lovely comedy-romance from Ireland is about a closeted gay teen and his lesbian schoolmate who pretend to be in a relationship to avoid being bullied at their school.
This premise makes Dating Amber an original story in a genre in which that's increasingly rare. This is added to the setting, in 1995 rural Ireland, which is executed to gorgeous perfection in everything from the clothes to the music.
Dating Amber ends up being more coming-of-age than a comedy-romance. It's a tale of friendship and self-acceptance.
thanks for listing this film… I loved.. loved… loved it!!! made my day so better. yay. i can sleep with a smile now.
I know films outside of US are great too. it’s just I am lazy and really have to look .. but I think when they are listed with similar tag or themes films do receive visibility.
What did you think? Who should watch it?
