Best known for his work in the theater, David Leveaux made his feature film directorial debut with this well-received 2016 wartime romance adapted from Alan Judd's novel "The Kaiser's Last Kiss." The story is a fictionalized account of the latter days of exiled Kaiser Wilhelm II (Christopher Plummer, in another acclaimed performance). Jai Courtney ("Suicide Squad") also stars as a Wehrmacht officer dispatched to investigate concerns that a British spy has infiltrated the Kaiser's residence in Holland and plans to assassinate him. Lily James and Janet McTeer also star.
