Harry Styles entered our lives as the lead singer of a boy band, and somehow, he’s transitioned into a serious actor.
In addition to his co-starring role in the highly anticipated ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ film from Olivia Wilde, the 28-year-old entertainer is also leading the upcoming queer drama, My Policeman.
In My Policeman, based on the award-winning novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts, Styles plays closeted copper Tom, who sparks a relationship with Patrick (Peaky Blinders‘ David Dawson), a handsome museum curator.
And because it begins in the 1950s, when homosexuality was still illegal in Britain, Styles’ character decides to settle down with a schoolteacher named Marion, played by Emma Corrin.
Flashing forward to the 1990s, Tom (Linus Roache), Marion (Gina McKee), and Patrick (Rupert Everett) are still reeling with longing and regret, but are faced with one last chance to repair the damage of the past.
My Policeman, which was directed by Michael Grandage, is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
It’ll then be released inside theaters on October 21, followed by a release on Prime Video two weeks later.
