Harry Styles stars in a story about a forbidden love set in the fifties

My Policeman – Teaser #1 – Prime Video

Harry Styles is a charismatic and talented artist who became world famous for his musical work. In recent years he has been drawn to acting and has participated in three feature films. While in the musical world he is popular and massive, bringing happiness to millions, in the cinema he seems to want to go in the opposite direction. Confident that his fans will follow him wherever he goes, he dared to make theoretically risky films after his first role in the film. Dunkirk (2017).

But this year two feature films starring him were released: Do not worry honey (available on HBO Max) and now my police (premiered on Prime Video). It must be that Harry feels guilty for being so famous and loved that now he makes movies to be neither famous nor loved.

The central plot of my police (mypoliceman, 2022) takes place in Brighton, Great Britain, in 1957. Another part of the action takes place years later, but the main conflict takes place in a period in which homosexuality was a crime in that country. Tom (Harry Styles) is a policeman and he is also gay. Despite this, Marion (Emma Corrin), a schoolteacher, falls in love with him. In parallel, Patrick (David Dawson), curator at a museum, is in love with Tom. That love can only be kept hidden, so Marian and Tom follow her relationship beyond her suspicions and his anguish.

Another part of the story finds the three of them much older, played by different actors. Tom (Linus Roache) and Marion (Gina McKee) are still married and Patrick (Rupert Everett), badly damaged, is brought into their home for care rather than institutionalized. The entire plot of the film consists of knowing what happened between the two eras and what are the pending accounts that still remain to be settled. A traditional drama, with a theme that is not new but that revives particularly difficult times for those who were homosexual.

The film is based on the novel by Bethan Roberts and is directed by Michael Grandage. It has great actors and a careful setting. Other than that, the film is a routine and solemn narration that arrives a bit late to this kind of conflict and that it develops them rather coldly, too concerned about not taking a wrong step. For Harry Styles it seems like a lot of effort to be taken seriously. Perhaps he doesn’t quite understand that for that to happen, the important thing is not to make dramatic movies, but to make good movies.
