My Policeman

After about two decades as an award-winning British theatre director, Michael Grandage made the move into feature films beginning with his 2016 debut Genius — a Berlin Film Festival selection starring Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Colin Firth and Laura Linney. He followed that up with a sophomore book to film project in April of last year with Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, David Dawson, Linus Roache, Rupert Everett and Kadiff Kirwan in a mostly London backdrop. My Policeman is an Amazon Studios project based on the screenplay written by celebrated scribe Ron Nyswaner. Grandage reteams with cinematographer Ben Davis here for a period piece triage drama.

Gist: Set in the 1950s in Brighton, a gay policeman named Tom marries a school teacher named Marion while being in a relationship with Patrick, a museum curator. The secret they share threatens to ruin them all.

Release Date/Prediction: We think Amazon will set the table for a Venice Film Festival premiere.
