Starring Lily James, Jai Courtney, Christopher Plummer. Director David Leveaux.
This romantic drama takes place during World War II and is set in the home of Germany’s exiled Kaiser Wilhelm II, played flawlessly by 85-year-old Plummer. It is an elegant period piece, toughened by the tension of the Nazis, headed by Heinrich Himmler, hunting an agent they think might be helping plot to get the Kaiser to London in a bid to eventually restore him to the German throne. While the theme of a Nazi falling for a Jewish woman isn’t original, James and Courtney have a dynamic chemistry, with Plummer as a worthy catalyst.
