Harry Styles has some highly anticipated projects coming out soon, like his movie with girlfriend Olivia Wilde, don’t worry darling. He is also starring in a new film from director Michael Grandage based on a book by Bethan Roberts called my policeman. The story takes place in the 1950s and focuses on a love triangle between Tom, Styles’ character, and his two lovers: Marion and Patrick.
Here’s what we know about the movie so far.
What is the plot of My Policeman?
In the book of the same name, my policeman focuses on Marion and Tom, who work as a teacher and a policeman, respectively. They meet in Brighton and fall in love, but a man named Patrick moves to town. Patrick is conservative and he mourns the death of his lover. He and Tom fall in love with each other too, but in 1950s Brighton, homosexuality is illegal.
Seemingly, things work out for the three of them for a while, but eventually jealousy rears its ugly and possibly inevitable head. The next part of the story takes place around 40 years later, after Tom and Marion are married and Patrick returns to see them again. His return has serious consequences for the couple.
who is in the movie my policeman?
The title policeman is played by Styles, and his wife Marion is played by Emma Corrin, who would be recognized by all fans of The crown. David Dawson plays the museum curator Tom loves. In the 1990s era of their story, Tom is played by Linus Roache, Marion by Gina McKee, and Patrick by Rupert Everett. Deadline reported in 2021 that Kadiff Kirwan of Chewing gum and the stranger would be in the casting.
East my policeman based on a true story?
In a play she wrote for The Guardian in 2012, Roberts said his book was inspired by true events, particularly the life of novelist EM Forster. Forster dated a cop named Bob Buckingham. He was also friends with Buckingham’s wife May.
“While living with May Buckingham promised her half days off and other weekday hours to Forster,” she wrote. “May, though jealous and often difficult, refused to listen when [warned] that Forster was about to break up his marriage. Perhaps she, like Buckingham, stood to gain from what Forster could offer: not just money (he often offered financial gifts), but also entry into the lives of the cultural elite.
In the case of Forster and the couple, May eventually served as his caretaker after suffering a stroke.
Are there any images of My Policeman?
Yes! There are two photos posted by Amazon right now, one in which Styles and Corrin as Tom and Marion enjoy a nice pool, another of the couple in a gallery with David Dawson as Patrick.
There was also this cute snap posted from Venice from their last day of filming.
