My Policeman has already been released in cinemas, but soon you’ll be able to watch the romantic drama film from the comfort of your own home as it lands on Amazon Prime Video.


Based on the novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts, the film stars Harry Styles as policeman Tom Burgess, who finds himself torn between schoolteacher Marion (The Crown star Emma Corrin) and museum curator Patrick (Peaky Blinders actor David Dawson) in the 1950s.

Linus Roache and Gina McKee portray older versions of couple Tom and Marion, and Roache recently explained how his performance was influenced by the musician's in the film.

Speaking exclusively to, he explained: "I don't think either of us wanted to inhibit the other. He [Styles] carries the weight of the movie, the younger characters are predominantly the story. So it really was a case of just letting them do what they're going to do."
