In this World War II thriller, exiled German monarch Kaiser Wilhelm II (Oscar-winner Christopher Plummer) is living on a secluded estate in the Netherlands. Sent to ferret out Dutch Spies, German soldier Stefan Brandt (Jai Courtney), 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) comes for an unexpected visit, 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. Toronto Int’l Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival.
