Dating Amber
4 July 2020 | by henry8-3See all my reviews

Petticrew and O'Shea are gay school seniors who date each other to avoid endless gibes from other students. She accepts she's gay, he refuses to accept it - a friendship develops against a variety of other problems at home.

Touching, but not ever so funny film that quite effectively explores teen issues particularly moving to adulthood amidst family demands and sexual ambiguity, with Petticrew, very much like a young Julie Walters, impressive.
