Directed by David DLeveaux (UK/USA, 2016, 107 min.). Sneak Preview/Massachusetts Premiere.
In this thriller set during World War II, exiled German monarch Kaiser Wilhelm II (Oscar-winner Christopher Plummer) is living on a secluded estate in the Netherlands. German soldier Stefan Brandt (Jai Courtney), sent to ferret out Dutch spies, begins investigating the Kaiser and his wife (Janet McTeer), but finds himself drawn to a mysterious housemaid (Lily James, Downton Abbey). When Heinrich Himmler (Eddie Marsan) arrives unexpectedly, secrets are revealed and allegiances tested. Adapting Alan Judd’s popular novel The Kaiser’s Last Kiss, David Leveaux (5-time Tony Award nominee) sets his tale of espionage and romance against a sweeping wartime backdrop.
“Christopher Plummer is regal, lion-in-winter fun.” —Screen Daily
