‘My Policeman’ becomes first ensemble recipient of TIFF Tribute Award for Performance

The Amazon Studios film ‘My Policeman’ cast has become the first ensemble to receive the Tribute Award for Performance at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

My Policeman features Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, Gina McKee, Linus Roache, David Dawson, and Rupert Everett.

The official synopsis for the film reads: 

“My Policeman follows three young people—policeman Tom (Harry Styles), teacher Marion (Emma Corrin), and museum curator Patrick (David Dawson)—as they embark on an emotional journey in 1950s Britain. Flashing forward to the 1990s, Tom (Linus Roache), Marion (Gina McKee), and Patrick (Rupert Everett) are still reeling with longing and regret, but now they have one last chance to repair the damage of the past.”

The film is based on the novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts. Michael Grandage has directed, while Ron Nyswaner has written the movie.

This is the fourth edition of the Tribute Awards. The Award for Performance was won by Jessica Chastain and Benedict Cumberbatch in 2021, Kate Winslet and Sir Anthony Hopkins in 2020, and Meryl Streep and Joaquin Phoenix in 2019.

My Policeman debuts in theatres on October 21, and streams worldwide on Prime Video from November 4.
