      Sheila B Nice coming-of-age film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review Nana u I just love everything about this movie, the cinematography, the acting, the story, everything. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/08/23 Full Review Mark C I really wasn't expecting too much from the film, but I wasn't pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The main characters had a special believable chemistry. For everyone who was a little different, this film teaches a lesson for them and everyone, learn to love and accept who you are, only then can you truly love another. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review Michael F A wonderful, touching Irish movie that'll have you laughing one minute and teary eyed the next. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/30/23 Full Review clive e This is a beautiful film. Wonderfully acted, convincing and heart felt. A sheer joy Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Delightful performances, compelling story but the ending felt flat, out of synch and underdeveloped. Otherwise 87 minutes of terrific moviemaking and then five final minutes of headscratching. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Leslie Felperin Hollywood Reporter An adorable look at friendship between two queer kids. Nov 21, 2020 Full Review Christy Lemire Breakfast All Day I like this a lot. It's really sweet. Rated: 7.4/10 Nov 21, 2020 Full Review Tracy Brown Los Angeles Times Not all of the ancillary characters and their stories are fully developed in the film's quick 92 minutes, but "Dating Amber" convincingly channels the angst and awkwardness that can be a part of teenagers' struggles with their identity. Nov 11, 2020 Full Review Ben Turner The Pink Lens A truthful and clever comedy that captures the purity of a beautiful friendship and the essence of two burgeoning but shy sexual awakenings. Rated: 4/5 Aug 31, 2021 Full Review Sarah Ward Concrete Playground In this amusing and astute gem, O'Shea and Petticrew put in wonderfully nuanced and layered performances that bring depth and emotion to every frame. Jul 10, 2021 Full Review Graeme Tuckett Stuff.co.nz Dating Amber is a likeable and well-put-together film. By the time it reaches its utterly predestined conclusion, you'll be happy enough to have seen it too. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 6, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
