Harry Styles finds himself in an emotionally complicated love triangle in the latest trailer for My Policeman, which dropped on Wednesday ahead of a world premiere for Michael Grandage’s 1950s romantic drama at the Toronto Film Festival.
Styles plays Tom, a closeted policeman who, along with Emma Corrin as teacher Marion and museum curator Patrick, played by David Dawson, become entangled in a forbidden relationship. Tom and Marion marry, but Styles’ character soon falls for Patrick as they begin a gay relationship.
“This love is all-consuming. I pity people who don’t know what it feels like, to be this in love,” Tom says at one point during the trailer in a voiceover. But Marion is soon protesting that her marriage to Tom is threatened by its entanglement with Patrick.
The trailer for the Amazon original movie also foreshadows the trio of lovers in the 1990s, as Tom (Linus Roache), Marion (Gina McKee) and Patrick (Rupert Everett) are still reeling with longing and regret, but now have one last chance to repair the damage of the past.
My Policeman is based on the book by Bethan Roberts and will bow at TIFF on Sept. 11. Producers on the film are Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robbie Rogers, Cora Palfrey and Philip Herd.
My Policeman will open in theaters on Oct. 21, ahead of its Nov. 4 streaming debut on Prime Video. The British drama will also screen at the 2022 London Film Festival on Oct. 15.
