Pivoting from an intergalactic superhero lothario in Marvel's Eternals to a '50s-set queer period romance, Harry Styles, the actor, is proving himself the versatile sort. Now, Amazon Studios has released the first teaser trailer for the latter, the forbidden love story My Policeman.

Styles stars as the eponymous policeman, Tom, who is gay but lives in a society where being is a crime. And so, he begins dating and eventually marries a schoolteacher, Marion (The Crown's Emma Corrin), while also embarking on a secret affair with museum curator Patrick (David Dawson).

My Policeman unfolds over two timelines, jumping forward to the 1990s when Patrick reenters Tom and Marion's life (played in their older years by Rupert Everett, Linus Roache and Gina McKee, respectively). As with all great romances, the past never stays in the past.

Based on Bethan Roberts' 2012 novel of the same name, the movie comes courtesy of director Michael Grandage from a script by Oscar nominated scribe Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia), and is produced by husbands Greg Berlanti and Robbie Rogers, with Sarah Schechter, Cora Palfrey and Philip Herd.

My Policeman opens in theaters on Oct. 21 and streams on Amazon Prime Video Nov. 4.
