2022 is Harry Styles' year. Since the former One Direction member embarked on his uber-successful solo career, he's dabbled in acting projects on top of giving us bops like "Music For a Sushi Restaurant." In 2017, he landed a role in Christopher Nolan's war film, Dunkirk, and has gone on to star in Olivia Wilde's Don't Worry Darling alongside Florence Pugh, which also drops this year. His next movie, My Policeman, is set in 1950s Brighton and follows a closeted police officer named Tom Burgess who's living in a society where being gay is illegal. He explores his sexuality through a secret affair with museum curator Patrick Hazelwood while he's dating a female school teacher named Marion.
So, if you're wondering who else has been cast in the movie, what it's about, and how to watch it when it comes out, look no further. Here are all the details on Harry Styles' new movie, My Policeman, from its release date to cast members and more.
When Does My Policeman come out?
According to an exclusive report by Vanity Fair, My Policeman hits theaters on Friday, October 21, 2022, and will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video on November 4, 2022. It looks like it's going to be Harry Styles szn at the movies, because his other movie, Don't Worry Darling, comes out the month before My Policeman's theatrical release.
Who's been cast in the movie?
While we're all looking forward to the movie because of Harry Styles' starring role, My Policeman has a super talented ensemble of actors. The Crown's Emma Corrin plays Marion, the school teacher that Tom starts dating early on in the story. Then there's Peaky Blinders actor David Dawson, who's taken on the role of Patrick, a museum curator that catches Tom's eye. The film also features Linus Roache, Gina McKee, and Rupert Everett as older versions of the characters.
Harry initially wasn't considered for any roles in the film. According to director Michael Grandage, Harry's team had approached him after reading the script and becoming "very interested" in the movie. The Vanity Fair article revealed that Michael was "immediately impressed" by Harry, who came to their first meeting as a "fully formed actor."
"He had read the script so many times that he knew every single beat of it at that meeting. I found that incredibly impressive. He knew other people's lines; he knew all of his lines. He knew why he wanted to talk about it, why one scene worked this way and another worked," Michael told the outlet. Emma was cast in the film ahead of the season 5 premiere of Netflix's The Crown, where they starred in their breakout role as Princess Diana.
What is My Policeman about?
My Policeman is based on the novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts that is inspired by the true story of E.M. Forster and his relationship with his lifelong friend Bob Buckingham and his wife. The book's synopsis is as follows:
It is in 1950s' Brighton that Marion first catches sight of Tom. He teaches her to swim in the shadow of the pier and Marion is smitten—determined her love will be enough for them both. A few years later in Brighton Museum Patrick meets Tom. Patrick is besotted with Tom and opens his eyes to a glamorous, sophisticated new world. Tom is their policeman, and in this age it is safer for him to marry Marion. The two lovers must share him, until one of them breaks and three lives are destroyed.
Is there a trailer for My Policeman?
Yep! Harry's official fan account, HSHQ, posted a trailer on Instagram on June 15, 2022. In it, we see Harry, Emma, and David in action. Let's just say it's a happy Pride month indeed.
What about photos?
Yep. In an exclusive first look with Vanity Fair published on June 9, 2022, we got to see two stills from the movie. It's a great day because Harry is in both of these pics with his cast mates, Emma Corrin and David Dawson.
Photos of Harry, Emma, and David on set also surfaced online in May 2021. In them, Harry is (quite literally) frolicking around in his police uniform. I can't make this up:
