A brand new clip has been released from The Exception, starring Christopher Plummer, Lily James and Jai Courtney.

Kaiser Wilhelm’s lavish exile in the Dutch countryside becomes the setting for an unlikely love affair and a dangerous spy mission in World War Two thriller The Exception, in cinemas and digital HD from 29th September, and DVD on 2nd October, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.

Nazi captain Stefan Brandt (Jai Courtney; Suicide Squad, Terminator: Genisys) is sent on a mission to investigate a threat to the exiled Kaiser Wilhelm II (Christopher Plummer; The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Last Station).

Arriving at the Kaiser’s secluded mansion, Brandt learns that local resistance and British Intelligence are moving in on the deposed German monarch. As he begins to infiltrate the Kaiser’s life in search of clues, Brandt finds himself drawn into an unexpected and passionate romance with Mieke (Lily James; Cinderella, Baby Driver), one of the Kaiser’s maids.

Also featuring Janet McTeer (TV’s The White Queen, The Woman In Black), Ben Daniels (TV’s House Of Cards, The Hollow Crown) and a mesmerising cameo from Eddie Marsan (Their Finest, War Horse) as the terrifying Heinrich Himmler, The Exception is based on Alan Judd’s international bestseller, ‘The Kaiser’s Last Kiss’ and is brought to the screen by acclaimed theatre director David Leveaux (The Glass Menagerie with Jessica Lange, Neil LaBute’s The Distance From Here).

With Plummer, James and Courtney delivering stellar performances and leading an incredible ensemble cast, The Exception is a thrilling, complex treat from start to finish and the perfect accompaniment to the onset of autumn.
