My Policeman

How about a romantic movie that focuses on forbidden and lost loves? My Policeman is a must-watch, whether you’re a Harry Styles fan or not. To be honest, you will end up being a Harry Styles fan after this.

It follows Tom, a policeman in 1950s Britain who falls for a schoolteacher. While they are in love, he also falls for a museum curator. Just a case of a man having an affair? Well, yes and no. This one follows a man having a same-sex affair during a time when homosexuality was illegal. The two risk everything to have their passion, but is there any way for it to end in happiness?

American Fiction

The last movie on the list is one of the Oscar-nominated movies. It is also one of the Amazon MGM Studios movies that you’ll want to check out. However, this one isn’t quite on Prime Video. You’ll need MGM+ as one of the Amazon Channels in addition. It’ll be worth adding for the night, though.

Jeffrey Wright stars as a novelist, known as Monk. He is fed up with the way Black entertainment relies on offensive tropes, and decides that it’s time to prove that it’s a problem. He opts to write an outlandish Black novel of his own, which points out all the hypocrisy and madness. Does it work? You’ll need to watch the movie to find out.
