The film stars Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, and David Dawson, and is directed by Tony and Laurence Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage (‘Genius’), with a script by Ron Nyswaner (‘Soldier’s Girl’ ‘Philadelphia’) wrote the screenplay.

The film will be released in Northern America and the UK on October 21, and on Amazon on November 4.

My Policeman’ is based on the novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts, set in Brighton, England in the 1950s, school teacher Marion (Corrin) fell in love at first sight with handsome policeman Tom (Styles), and the two soon fell in love.

Soon after, Tom met Patrick (Dawson), the museum’s director, who opened his eyes to a fascinating and complex new world.

Although Tom was attracted to Patrick, marrying Marion was safer for him in a time when homosexuality was illegal.

As a result, Marion and Patrick can only share Tom until one of them breaks out and the lives of the three are changed forever.

The film will take the form of flashbacks as the couple, Tom and Marion, bring home an elderly and infirm Patrick, forcing them to revisit the seismic-level events of 40 years ago and review the passionate love story between Tom and Patrick.
