Hello guys, we are back with the review of a movie that is a sad and beautiful tale in itself, the name of the movie is My Policeman starring Harry Styles. Yes, that's right, Harry Styles... so, do you wanna know more?

The article is all about the movie its plot, casts, reviews, etc.

My Policeman Plot-

In the first scene of the book, Marion, a retired teacher, is writing a "confession" to Patrick, who is her husband's lover. Marion's letter then jumps forward 48 years to the moment she first met Tom, the man she would eventually marry. She recounts her longing for Tom and how their dating developed from their friendship. She was able to provide perspective on her past while standing in the present. The story eventually flips viewpoints and presents Patrick's old notebook entries. He discusses his relationship with Tom, whom he refers to as "my policeman," his cherished profession as a museum curator, and negotiating his sexuality during a time when being homosexual was against the law. The more their lives are intertwined, the more Marion comes to understand the reality of Patrick and Tom. Their lives are irrevocably altered when a hasty, terrible choice is made.

Dueling views of both Marion and Patrick provide them with the chance to discuss the joys and sorrows of loving the same man. Roberts expertly demonstrates the destruction of not being able to or being unable to live in one's truth, and the peaceful conclusion provides a moving moment of solace for everybody. Although Marion, Tom, and Patrick have not lived the lives they anticipated or desired, there is still time. Nothing can be undone, but maybe the truth may help them all start to heal.
