My Policeman, directed by Red’s Michael Grandage, follows the story of PC Tom Burgess, who fights to conceal his sexuality while living in Brighton, England, in 1957. The film is based on Bethan Roberts’s 2012 novel My Policeman, which investigates the persecution of homosexuality in 1950s Britain.
“The whole point of Tom is that he is a character who is perplexed.” It’s made more complicated by the fact that he’s a cop, and his job is to enforce the law. And the law in the country at the time is about everything he feels—the complexity of it is something that whoever played younger Tom and adult Tom needed to comprehend and absorb,” adds Grandage.

The Story of My Policeman
My Policeman is set in the 1950s, during a time when social culture, history, and politics were changing rapidly. A young police officer, Tom Burgess, gets caught in the midst of the changing tides of time when he falls in love with the artistic-minded museum curator, Patrick Hazelwood.
Marion, a schoolteacher, appears and falls in love with Tom. Given the circumstances, Tom and Patrick’s love seemed unachievable, so he marries Marion while continuing to love Patrick. And so starts a complicated, chaotic journey for three young people as they navigate social upheaval, emotional conflict, and unfulfilled love.
Even as the novel progresses and time passes, the three characters’ feelings of longing and sorrow continue to engulf them. My Policeman is not a mystery or suspense novel, but rather a long and exhausting trip through life that must be discovered.
Though we know what it’s about, we still don’t know how each of the individuals navigates their social identities while coping with their emotions and self-discoveries, and how this upheaval in their life all comes together in the end.
According to our sources, My Policeman will be a poignant portrayal of love, liberty, and forgiveness.
