Dating Amber (2020)

Two school friends decide to start a pretend straight relationship in an effort to fit in.

"A truthful and clever comedy that captures the purity of a beautiful friendship and the essence of two burgeoning but shy sexual awakenings."

"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."

"The sort of film that generates such goodwill from the audience towards its characters that we can't help but want to see how these two ended up, because we've become so invested in their stories."

"An adorable look at friendship between two queer kids."

The trailer looks delightful, thanks for the heads up. It's streaming on HBO and Kanopy at the moment.

Thanks for the excellent recommendation, WCityMike2, and thank you for the mention that it's on Kanopy, mediareport! I watched this today and really enjoyed it. It was really warmly done, with such nice turns of humor and kindness and thoughtfulness about when and how people are brave.

I watched this a couple of weeks ago and thought it was quite good. I do wish they had kept the original title, Beards, because the current title is… not doing the movie any favors.

Thank you for the recommendation. I watched and enjoyed it. I don't know if I would call it adorable--it was more sad to me.
