David Freyne's Dating Amber to Premiere on Amazon Prime Video
15 May 2020 : News Desk
Dating Amber releases on Amazon Prime on 4th June
Dating Amber release on Amazon Prime on 4th June, with Wildcard Distribution releasing the feature film in Ireland when cinemas re-open.

Written and directed by David Freyne (The Cured), Dating Amberis set in Ireland during the mid-90’s, where Eddie (Fionn O’Shea: Handsome Devil; Normal People) and Amber (Lola Petticrew: A Bump Along The Way) decide to stage a relationship in order to stop everyone speculating about their sexuality. Eddie is keen to follow his Dad into the military, while Amber dreams of moving to the liberal hub of London. However, their ‘ideal’ arrangement begins to fall apart, forcing Eddie deeper into denial as Amber realises that a perilous future awaits her best friend unless she intervenes.

Dating Amberis a poignant, honest and funny look at the highs and lows of teenage life where the only way to fit in is to not be yourself, even if this goes against your very being.

Writer and director David Freyne commented, “Dating Amber is as personal a film as I will ever make.  It's my love letter to my home and for all those kids who needed to escape to be themselves.  And at its heart are two extraordinary young stars, Fionn O'Shea and Lola Petticrew. I’m so excited to share it on Amazon Prime Video, to bring some laughter in these uncertain times and for everyone to fall in love with Eddie and Amber."

The film also stars BAFTA and IFTA Award winner Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe; Military Wives), Barry Ward (Extra Ordinary; Maze) and Simone Kirby (Artemis Fowl).  The film was funded by Screen Ireland and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and was produced by Rachael O’Kane (The Cured) and John Keville (The Hole in The Ground). Benoit Rôland (Filth) Co-Produced the film with Altitude’s Will Clarke, Andy Mayson, and Mike Runagall. Runagall and Screen Irelands’ Dearbhla Regan are Executive Producing. 

Altitude are handling international sales and will be screening at the Cannes Virtual Market.
