Without skipping a single beat, Venice Film Festival has ended only to travel across the globe where the Toronto Film Festival is well underway. Day three of the lauded event marked the hotly anticipated premiere of My Policeman with Emma Corrin and Harry Styles in attendance (luckily sans the drama this time).
We weren’t emotionally ready for Corrin’s jaw-dropping appearance as they stepped out in a high-cut leotard and cape hybrid with sheer stockings and black pumps. The actress wore a shaggy blonde pixie cut, iridescent green eye shadow and a single black beauty mark on their right cheek. Corrin is usually styled by Harry Lambert who also dresses their co-star.
As for Styles, he naturally wore a tonal Gucci ensemble complete with a huge flower pinned to his lapel, buttery yellow heeled boots and a top handle bag from the Gucci Bamboo 1947 collection.
This is the only moment we needed:
The on-screen couple attended a press conference for the upcoming drama on Sunday where Styles discussed getting into the headspace for his closeted character.
“I think he’s very curious,” Styles said told press per a report from Variety. “I think he’s someone who is born into a very small world and, if you’re born into that kind of environment, you feel like you know where the edge of the world is. Slowly throughout the story, I think he’s realizing that it is a little further away than Brighton. I think people live entire lives in very small bubbles like that, and if that’s how you’ve been brought up, and everyone around you and generations before you, your parents, etc. have all lived within their kind of small bubble, it’s obviously very difficult to even picture the world outside of that.”
For the uninitiated, My Policeman is based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Michael Grandage. It follows a policeman named Tom Burgess (Styles) who is gay, in a 1950’s society that deems it illegal. He begins dating a school teacher named Marion (Corrin) while also partaking in an affair with museum curator, Patrick Hazelwood (David Dawson).
The film will receive a theatrical release from October 21, 2022, and will later be released to Amazon Prime from November 4, 2022.
