So the film My Policeman explores the pain and challenges that gay men have had to endure throughout history. Tom’s profession as a policeman complicates this, as he struggles between obeying the law or following his heart. Though set in the 1950s, this story still resonates today as anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and the criminalization of homosexuality remain a pressing issue around the world. My Policeman will be available to watch starting November 4 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
