5 REASONS TO WATCH 'MY POLICEMAN'

My Policeman is streaming now on Amazon Prime!


Based on Bethan Roberts’ novel of the same name, Amazon Studios’ My Policeman has hit its streaming service, Amazon Prime. To celebrate the release, we’re giving you five reasons to check out the film, which stars Harry Styles, Emma Corrin and David Dawson.


Directed by Michael Grandage, the film follows policeman Tom Burgess (Styles) schoolteacher Marion Taylor (Corrin) and museum curator Patrick Hazlewood (Dawson). We meet the trio in the 1990’s, before travelling back to the 1950’s to reveal the events and circumstances of forbidden love that led towards their fractured relationship.



ONE

If you like The Notebook, you’ll like My Policeman. There are elements within the storyline that reflect what we came to know from the beautiful love story back in 2004. Particularly referring to past and present love, with a focus on queer love and representation.



TWO

There were so many stunning locations, harking back to a modern classic style. Combined with the cinematography, it was just brilliant. The costuming complimented this as well. Due to the content present in the roles each character played we were treated to city scapes, sea scapes and country landscapes. It was very much in the style of what we’ve come to love and expect from British dramas.



THREE

The duel time perspective was well achieved. We were able to navigate through different time periods with ease. Creating a beautiful way of storytelling through many creative devices. Considering how difficult this technique could have been it was really well done.



FOUR

Excellent portrayal of the characters by Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, David Dawson, Rupert Everett, Gina McKee and Linus Roache. It was stellar casting by the My Policeman team. The actors really picked up on certain nuances that really pushed on throughout the film. Styles and Roache were particularly impressive when it came to this. It can be said, all the actors captured something beautiful in their portrayal of Tom, Patrick and Marion.



FIVE

The ending. I wasn’t the only one crying in the end. You could hear members of the audience trying to suppress sobs, trying to maintain the stillness and quiet in the room. Which was indicative of the audience taking in the final moments of the film. It almost felt like we could breathe, we travelled through these characters lives and in the end we could breathe in the promise of tomorrow.
