The first reviews for Harry Styles’ steamy gay cop film My Policeman are in – here’s how to watch it

Harry Styles’ My Policeman is one of the most anticipated film releases of the year, and the very first reviews are in.

Styles is playing one of the lead roles in the queer flick from Amazon Studios, based on a 2012 novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts.

Set in Brighton in 1957, the movie follows cop Tom Burgess (Styles) falling for David Dawson’s Patrick Hazelwood, a museum curator.

But his wife Marion, a school teacher who will be played by Emma Corrin, discovers her husband is having an affair, and she mounts a bid to have him arrested – homosexuality being still illegal at the time.

The film currently doesn’t have a release date, but a secret test screening has been held in San Diego for fans of queer movies.

Fans who saw the screening had their phones taken off them, but luckily a fan account on Twitter named, My Policeman Updates interviewed some of the attendees after the showing.

The first tweet after the screening said that the film was “gorgeous” and the acting “amazing”.

They later add that “Harry gives a very nuanced performance, the stress and fear of being found out is palpable and heart wrenching” and the star of the film “shows real talent and depth as an actor”.

There was also some reaction to the sex scenes in the film with the queer sex scenes described as longer, more intimate and less awkward than expected.

They say the scenes between Harry and David are “beautifully choreographed” and they’re “lovely” rather than “obscene”.

However, one seemingly disappointed reviewer adds: “There is nudity …only arse cheeks”, alongside the upside down smiley emoji.

Other teasers include “Italy” alongside heart emojis, so fans can expect to fall in love with those scenes, and that there’s “slight changes to the book”.

Fans also said that Harry’s co-star Emma Corrin, who plays his wife was “outstanding”, while David, who plays Patrick, “has an amazing presence and really captured the audience”.

How to watch My Policeman

The film is being distributed by Amazon Studios, which means it’s more than likely to be released on streaming service Amazon Prime Video.

Similar to other Amazon releases like Oscar-nominated Being the Ricardos, the film may also get a limited cinema run so fans can see Styles on the big screen.

The release date is yet to be announced but it’s expected to be in 2022, and it will be available to stream as part of an Amazon Prime Video subscription.
