Dating Amber will debut on Amazon Prime on June 4 before hitting theaters later this year.
Dating Amber is a new Irish film which will be released this summer. Starring Normal People star Fionn O’Shea and Belfast actress Lola Petticrew (from A Bump Along The Way), the film is set in Ireland in the 90s and tells the story of best friends Eddie and Amber who get into a bogus relationship to avoid questions about their sexuality. In one line – they’re each other’s beards … which was also coincidentally the old name of the movie.
Eager to follow in her father’s footsteps and join the military, Amber dreams of bigger and brighter lights in London. However, things inevitably start to turn sour for the couple, forcing them to face their inner demons head-on. Posting a preview of what’s to come online, fans described the trailer as a cross between Sex Education and Derry Girls – two incredibly popular shows we are fans of.
A number of other famous faces are appearing, including BAFTA and IFTA award winner Sharon Horgan, Barry Ward and Simone Kirby to name a few. Many of Fionn’s Normal People co-stars also showed his latest project some love with Paul Mescal by tweeting to encourage fans to watch him.
Take a look at the trailer below.
Written and directed by Irish director David Freyne, the film will debut on Amazon Prime in June before hitting theaters when they reopen later this year.
