MY POLICEMAN AND DON'T WORRY DARLING UPDATES-episode 244-olivia wilde, florence pugh, adore you
Harry Styles is confirmed to star alongside Emma Corrin in a movie based on My Policeman, a story about a married man who falls in love with another man during the 1950s. The book is told from the wife’s perspective and deals with love, marriage, and the homophobia of the time. We talk about the importance of queer people telling queer stores and dig into the directing/producing history of the team telling this story (big thanks to Stef for this one!).
We also have fun looking at behind the scenes photos for Don’t Worry Darling, the movie Harry is just wrapping filming for, starring Florence Pugh and directed by Olivia Wilde. Neither of us have read the script yet so we make guesses as to what the blood stains mean on Florence's dress, why Harry’s head has fake blood, where Harry’s tattoos went and how long it took them to cover with makeup, why Harry is wearing a floral apron, and whether or not there is a time jump in the movie based on one picture where their outfits seem to look like something one may see today.
We also talk about Olivia Wilde’s interview/conversation with director of Promising Young Woman, Emerald Fennell, for Variety. Wilde talks about her approach to directing and the emphasis she puts on creating a comfortable, non-hierarchical, warm environment for all crew and actors on her sets. She seems like a damn good person and an awesome director!
