Competition: Win ‘Amber’ *closed*

An ambitious and powerful story, Amber is an emotional journey filled with psychological insight and unexpected twists as the girl’s disappearance has an impact far greater than anyone could have imagined, imparting the sense of loss, incomprehension and anguish a family feels when a loved one, especially a child, goes missing. To celebrate the home entertainment release of RTÉ’s hit drama, we have THREE DVD copies of Amber – The Complete Series to give away to our regular readers, courtesy of the team at UK distributors (and home of Nordic Noir) Arrow Films. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Ben (David Murray) and Sarah Bailey (Eva Birthistle) are recently separated but doing their best to get on with their lives while remaining good parents to their children, Amber (Lauryn Canny) and Eamon (Levi O’Sullivan). Then, in one day, their lives are turned upside down when Amber fails to return home one evening. The disappearance of 14-year-old Amber sets off a two-year search during which time her family experience unimaginable guilt, fear, and devastating grief as they live out every parent’s worst nightmare. Investigating the case of the missing teenager from different viewpoints, each episode plays with the chronology of events and focuses on the perspective of one individual connected to the case as first her family, then friends, then complete strangers become drawn into the quest to find out what happened.
