Harry Styles movies will be on both sides of the pond this fall. While Venice is getting New Line’s Don’t Worry Darling, which the pop sensation stars in, the Toronto International Film Festival also will be playing the world premiere of Amazon Studios’ My Policeman, in which Styles also stars.
The latter pic, directed by Michael Grandage, follows Styles’ Tom, a policeman who’s in the midst of a love triangle with Marion, a teacher (Emma Corrin), and museum curator Patrick (David Dawson), at a time when homosexuality was forbidden 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.

The 47th edition of TIFF, which will be live and virtual, runs September 8-18. We’re still waiting for the full lineup from the fest, but My Policeman marks the sixth world premiere at Toronto after The Woman King, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story, Brother, On the Come Up and Bros.
