The Exception centres around German soldier Capt. Stefan Brandt, played by Jai Courtney. Yeah, I know… Jai Courtney from Terminator Genisys! He couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag!
Anyhoo, he’s trying 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… he falls in love, for a young Jewish Dutch woman, Mieke de Jong (Lily James), during his investigation.
However, with Eddie Marsan popping up in the trailer as Heinrich Himmler, it doesn’t actually look that bad from the trailer, despite Jai Courtney!
The Exception is released in the US on June 2nd, but as of yet there’s no UK date.
Director: David Leveaux
Writer: Simon Burke (based on the novel “The Kaiser’s Last Kiss” by Alan Judd)
