The teen drama comes to Amazon Prime Video in June.

Irish writer/director David Freyne's last movie was the gritty zombie thriller The Cured, but now he's tackling something really scary - teenage life.

Set in 1990s Ireland, Dating Amber stars Fionn O'Shea and Lola Pettigrew as Eddie and Amber, two gay 17-year-olds who decide to stage a fake relationship to throw off speculation about their sexuality. The film also stars Sharon Horgan, Barry Ward and Simone Kirby.

Dating Amber will be available on Amazon Prime Video for UK/ROI viewers from June 4th, with an Irish cinema release planned for whenever cinemas get back on their feet.

Speaking about his film, Freyne said "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."

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Set-in Ireland during the mid-90’s, Eddie (O’Shea) and Amber (Petticrew) 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.
