Harry Styles Talks His Upcoming Film 'My Policeman'

Harry Styles attended the Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of his upcoming film, 'My Policeman', over the weekend where he spoke in a press conference about how he was able to get in the headspace of his character - the closeted policeman Tom. Taking place in the 1950's, a time when being gay was illegal.

It sounds like he may have had some media training since the Venice Film Festival, where he spoke about his other upcoming film, 'Don't Worry Darling'. Just read how he explains how Tom must be thinking in the film:

I think he’s very curious. 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... 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. So I think when he meets someone like [his lover] Patrick, who is well-traveled and likes art, he finds himself kind of being curious about those things. It’s feeding his curiosity, it’s kind of strange for him to be curious about stuff. And then I think with Marion he also finds ultimately a friend who is the most accepting of him, and I think that’s why, kind of regardless of whichever way you think on their relationship, I think their friendship is incredibly real and loving and tender.

How beautifully said! In addition, Styles emphasizes this should not simply be viewed as a gay love story... "It’s about love and about wasted time to me.”
