Amazon Prime Video recently released the trailer for a new film set in the 90s. It is Dating Amber, a film that mixes drama, comedy, and romance with a style that seems very unique. David Freyne wrote and directed the movie, and the film will star Fionn O’Shea and Lola Petticrew.
O’Shea and Petticrew will play Eddie and Amber, a couple of teenagers who pretend to be boyfriends to avoid their families and friends to start asking questions about their sexuality.
Dating Amber is set in mid-90s Ireland. In the plot, we will see how Eddie (O’Shea) and Amber (Petticrew) agree to fake a courtship to prevent people from speculating about their sexuality. Eddie is inclined to follow in his father’s footsteps and enter the military academy, while Amber dreams of moving to London.
However, their plans are starting to go off track. Eddie’s life becomes more complicated, and Amber realizes that her best friend’s life could go very badly if she doesn’t intervene in the situation.
The film’s director, David Freyne, said in an interview that Dating Amber is perhaps the most personal film he has ever made. “It’s my love letter to my home and for all those kids who needed to escape to be themselves.” So we can expect a meticulous direction. And judging by the trailer, it makes me feel like it’s not gonna disappoint.
The wait for the movie won’t be long. It will be released this June 4th.
