My Policeman Plot

In Brighton, during the 1950s a socially closeted policeman, Tom Burgess, engages in a love affair with a museum curator, Patrick Hazelwood. After being forced to repress his true feelings, he marries a schoolteacher called Marion. But, as Tom begins to feel torn between the two, tensions rise and ultimately he must make a choice.

This film is based on the highly acclaimed novel of the same name, written by Bethan Roberts.


Grammy-award winning Styles spearheads this films as policeman Tom Burgess. Styles has been making his way into the film industry for some time now. He starred in the smash-hit movie Dunkirk and in the upcoming Olivia Wilde film Don’t Worry Darling alongside Florence Pugh.

Tom’s wife Marion is portrayed by The Crown’s own Emma Corrin. She played Lady Diana Spencer in season four of Netflix’s The Crown.

Patrick Hazelwood is played by Olivier-award winner David Dawson. Dawson can also be seen in shows such as Peaky Blinders and The Last Kingdom

Other cast members include Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding), Gina McKee (Notting Hill) and Linus Roache (Vikings).

Talking with Vanity Fair, gay footballer Robbie Rogers says that My Policeman was ‘kind of like my coming-out book. I really think the book found me.’

Rogers is among the millions of people who cannot wait to see this film. However he also made reference to the string of antigay laws, such as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill being passed in America recently.

‘The world moves forward slowly and then there are very ignorant people that want to send us back to the ’50s,’ he said.
