Two gay high-schoolers in small town Ireland act as each other's beards in this sweet-natured coming-out-and-of-age comedy. Free for Dartmouth students and Hop members!
A gentle, bittersweet Irish charmer, Dating Amber follows two gay teens who pretend to be in love, thus deflecting the speculation of classmates and concerned parents. Both 17 and closeted, Eddie is keen to follow his Dad into the military, while Amber wants to open an anarchist bookshop with franchise potential. As their charade continues, Amber becomes more comfortable with her queerness but the taciturn Eddie retreats inwards. Their parallel journeys dispense with a one-size-fits-all coming-out narrative and are handled with a light touch by Irish writer and director David Freyne.
