“This love is all-consuming.” My Policeman, a heartfelt portrait of three people caught in a love triangle amid “the shifting tides of history, liberty, and forgiveness” will make its Prime Video debut this week.
The romantic drama, starring Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, Gina McKee, Linus Roache, David Dawson and Rupert Everett, will be released on the platform on Friday (Nov. 4).
Directed by Michael Grandage, My Policeman shares a story of forbidden love that spans decades. Set in 1950s Britain, the LGBTQ+ drama centers around a married policemen who falls in love with another man.
This heart-pounding story unfolds over the course of four decades, following the impassioned journey of policeman Tom (Styles), his teacher wife Marion (Corrin) and museum curator Patrick (Dawson).
The story jumps ahead to the 1990s and finds Tom (Linus Roache), Marion (Gina McKee), and Patrick (Rupert Everett) reeling with longing and regret, but they get one more chance to repair the damage of the past.
“For me, the reason why the story is so devastating is that, ultimately, the whole story is about wasted time, and I think wasted time is the most devastating thing,” Styles said of the film’s central themes during the world premiere in Toronto last month, per The Hollywood Reporter.
“Because it’s the one thing we cannot control,” he continued. “It’s the one thing you can’t have back. And I think the one thing that I think matters – whatever kind of life you’ve lived – at the end when you think back on time with people you love.”
Ron Nyswaner wrote the film’s script, while Grandage, Michael Riley McGrath, and Caroline Levy are executive producers.
My Policeman is based on the book of the same name, written by Bethan Roberts. The story was inspired by the life of English author, E.M. Forster and his long-time companion, married policeman Bob Buckingham, and Buckingham’s wife.
