Christopher Plummer Doles Out Relationship Advice in 'The Exception' (Exclusive Clip)
"Be careful what you wish for."
Unsolicited relationship advice is rarely welcome. One of the primary exceptions being when it comes from the mouth Christopher Plummer.
In a clip from A24's WWII espionage thriller The Exception, Plummer, playing German monarch Kaiser Wilhelm II, offers some hard-won wisdom to his house maid (Lily James) on her relationship with German solider Stefan (Jai Courtney).
The Kaiser offers a story of his own about young unrequited love, which ended with the girl of his dreams marrying a Romanov, ominously adding, "Be careful what you wish for."
The feature, from director David Leveaux, follows Stefan while he attempts to gather intel on the reclusive Kaiser, but things get complicated when he falls for the housemaid Mieke, who is revealed to be Jewish.
The Exception is available now, exclusively, on DirecTV, and will hit theaters on June 2.
