Dating Amber

Hosted by Inside Out Toronto

Nov 12th, Noon to Dec 6th, 11:59 PM (ET)

Eddie and Amber decide to stage a relationship in order to stop everyone speculating about their sexuality.

Eddie is determined to follow in his father’s footsteps and enlist in the military after graduation. Amber has her sights set on moving to London. Dreams are good, but dreams don’t help in the schoolyard when you’re being teased and accused of being gay. And so the two friends hatch the perfect plan: to be each other’s beards, posing as high school sweethearts to deflect further speculation. The plan seems solid, but as their arrangement begins to fall apart, Eddie’s denial grows deeper as Amber realizes that a perilous future awaits her best friend unless she intervenes.

After the film, you can access our Q&A with director David Freyne and actor Fionn O’Shea, moderated by Andrew Murphy.
