In cinemas today is The Exception, the new film starring Jai Courtney, Lily James and Christopher Plummer. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year (read our review here), and follows a German soldier who tries to determine if the Dutch resistance has planted a spy to infiltrate the home of Kaiser Wilhelm in Holland during the onset of World War II, but falls for a young Jewish Dutch woman during his investigation.
To celebrate the film’s release, we have an worldwide exclusive clip from the film.
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.
