Dating Amber

Queer Kino presents

This summer comedy about friendship, rebellion and self-acceptance tells the story of shy Eddie and independent Amber. The two friends decide to fake a romantic relationship to silence speculation about their sexuality – because in small-town Ireland in the mid-nineties, there's no room for any kind of difference.

The conspiratorial deal is supposed to last until graduation. After that, Amber plans to move to the liberal London, where she can live freely and pursue her passion for music. Eddie, however, refuses to fully admit his orientation and intends to dedicate his future to serving in the army like his father. Can Amber help him break free from the prejudices of his surroundings?
