Harry Styles in queer love triangle in “My Policeman”

The trailer for the highly anticipated “My Policeman” has been released. The film, starring Harry Styles and The Crown’s Emma Corrin, is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Although regular moviegoers won’t be able to see the film in cinemas until October 21.

My Policeman centres around a closeted Brighton police officer in the 1950’s called Tom Burgess, played by Harry Styles. Tom finds himself in a queer love triangle after he marries schoolteacher Marion (played by Emma Corrin) while also being in a relationship with museum curator Patrick (played by David Dawson).

A beautifully crafted story of forbidden love and changing social conventions, “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. Based on the book by Bethan Roberts, director Michael Grandage carves a visually transporting, heart-stopping portrait of three people caught up in the shifting tides of history, liberty, and forgiveness.

Inspired by the love life of novelist E.M. Forster, Roberts’ new book captures an unconventional—and illegal—love triangle in 1950s England. The film is based on the book of the same name, written by Bethan Roberts. It was adapted for the screen by Oscar-nominated Ron Nyswaner, who has had a hand in making remarkable films like Philadelphia (1993).

A melancholy story about love, loss, and unnecessary suffering.

Being produced by Amazon Studios we expect to be seen on Amazon Prime Video at a certain time.
