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.

It being 1950s Britain where homosexuality was still illegal, Tom decides to settle down with schoolteacher Marion, played by The Crown's 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.

Directed by Michael Grandage (Genius) from a screenplay by Ron Nyswaner, My Policeman will premiere at TIFF, which runs from Sept. 8-18, before opening in theaters on Oct. 21. The film will then arrive on Prime Video on Nov. 4.
