An SS captain (Jai Courtney) is assigned as the new head of security for Germany's former ruler, Kaiser Wilhelm II (Christopher Plummer), who was exiled to the Netherlands after the defeat of World War I. However, the position is really a cover for his pursuit of a spy who is sabotaging the Nazi war effort. Lily James, Janet McTeer, and Eddie Marsan co-star. Directed by David Leveaux, The Exception was adapted from the novel The Kaiser's Last Kiss by Alan Judd.
