Here’s a first official look at Lily James and Jai Courtney in The Kaiser’s Last Kiss, the upcoming period drama movie directed by David Leveaux from a script by Simon Burke based on the novel of the same name by Alan Judd:(Click on the picture to enlarge.)
“Notions of duty and love of country are tested against the power of love itself. The 1940 invasion of Holland brings the Nazis face to face with their former monarch, Kaiser Wilhelm (Christopher Plummer), who was exiled to the Netherlands in 1918. In an effort to thwart the Nazis, the Dutch resistance work covertly with Winston Churchill in inserting an agent into the Kaiser’s household. A lethally dangerous love affair ignites between a German officer (Jai Courtney) and a young Jewish Dutch woman (Lily James) with consequences that neither they nor the Kaiser himself could have foreseen. As the Nazis race to identify and eliminate the agent to block the potentially disastrous defection of their former Emperor to England, the threads of history conspire with the recklessness of the heart to dumbfound them.”
An impossible love story between an “Aryan” soldier and a Jewish girl… Do you think he will chose to serve the evil Third Reich? Or will he save the woman he fell in love with?
Anyway, here’s a set picture of Christopher Plummer who’s portraying Kaiser Wilhelm II:(Click on the picture to enlarge.)
Christopher Plummer was chasing a nazi in the movie Remember. Does that mean he’s playing both sides? lol!
There’s no official release date yet.
