My Policeman Plot
A gay policeman named Tom weds a schoolteacher named Marion while having an affair with museum curator Patrick in Brighton in the 1950s. The shared secret poses a threat to their collective demise.
The lead actor in the cast of My Policeman on Prime Video is Harry Styles, who portrays the covertly gay police officer Tom Burgess opposite The Crown actress Emma Corrin as Marion, Burgess’ wife.
In the 1957 film My Policeman, directed by Red’s Michael Grandage, PC Tom Burgess battles to keep his sexual orientation a secret while residing in Brighton on the south coast of the United Kingdom. The film, which is based on Bethan Roberts’ 2012 book My Policeman, examines how homosexuality was criminalised in 1950s Britain.
“Tom is a character who is confused, and that is the whole purpose. Given that he works as a police officer and that his job involves maintaining the law, this situation is complicated. Whoever was going to play younger Tom and older Tom needed to somehow comprehend and absorb the intricacy of the legislation in the nation at the time, which is about everything he feels, says Grandage.

What Is My Policeman About, Is It Based On A Book?
The 2012 novel My Policeman by Bethan Roberts, which examines the criminalization of homosexuality in the 1950s, served as the inspiration for the film. The book examines Brighton’s sexual traditions from the 1920s through the 1990s. It is written from Marion and Patrick’s perspectives as they each reflect on Tom, the man they adore so dearly. The author E.M. Forster served as an inspiration for the book.
