Music plays an important role in setting the mood for movies that take place in a time period next to the present, and this is certainly true of Amazon Prime’s my police officer. Simultaneously in 1958 and 1999, my police officer follows the tragic love story of Harry Styles’ Tom and David Dawson’s Patrick, the former of whom is married to Emma Corrin’s Marion. The film’s soundtrack varies widely, with 1950s rock and roll tracks and classical music, helping not only determine the settings in my police officerbut also the characters and their points of view.

The music from the Amazon Prime movie makes the transitions between 1958 and 1999 feel seamless and easy. Steven Price’s score also effectively captures the loneliness that encapsulates all three characters in 1999 during my police officer.
