The film is based on the book of the same name by author Bethan Roberts.

"The whole point of Tom is that he is a character who is confused,"director Michael Grandage told Vanity Fair. "It's made more problematic by the fact that he's a policeman, and he's in a career that is about upholding the law.

"And the law in the country at the time is about everything he feels - the complexity of it is something that whoever was going to play younger Tom and older Tom needed to somehow understand and absorb."
