The Ex­cep­tion

The TV Guide - - DVD RELEASES -

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.
