My Policeman, Michael Grandage’s new movie, which premiered on the Toronto Worldwide Movie Competition on Sunday.
That’s the meant attraction of this sodden and dreary movie, tailored from the favored 2012 novel by Bethan Roberts.
It’s a narrative of regrets and thwarted romance within the fashion of Atonement-era Ian McEwan, say, all that ache and eager for misplaced and ruined issues.
My policeman video on Twitter:
My Policeman is studied and plodding in its period-piece solemnity, a dirge of a film about reckless folks that’s by no means warmed by their implied inside hearth.
The movie is a love triangle, between candy and naive college trainer Marion (Emma Corrin within the Nineteen Fifties portion of the plot, the good Gina McKee later on in life);
Her policeman beau and eventual husband, Tom (Harry Types, then Linus Roache); and an erudite and cultured museum curator.
