73. My Policeman

Kaylia and Chris talk about this book turned movie that attempts to tell the tragic love story of two gay men through the lens of a (some would say unlikeable) straight woman. Is this all styles or is there substance in this book and movie combo?

My Policeman is a 2012 romance novel written by Bethan Roberts. It is set in Brighton, East Sussex, England, in the 1950s.

My Policeman is a 2022 American romantic drama film based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts and directed by Michael Grandage. The film stars Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, Gina McKee, Linus Roache, David Dawson, and Rupert Everett.

Show Notes

 “queerbaiting,” is capitalizing on pieces of the queer identity without actually identifying as queer.

Harry Styles

Robert Daniels of RogerEbert.com opined that the film “is surface-level queer representation lacking in visual imagination and begging for better performances”

How that ^^^ relates to Harry Styles
