Thanks to A24 here’s the first official trailer of The Exception, the upcoming period drama movie directed by David Leveaux and starring Lily James, Jai Courtney, Christopher Plummer, Janet McTeer, Ben Daniels, and Eddie Marsan:
A king in exile.
A woman hiding a secret.
A soldier serving his country.
Love is the exception.
“A mother must protect her family on Christmas Day from a demented stranger who is hell-bent on tearing them apart.
Matriarch Diane (genre veteran Dee Wallace) has invited her adult children to celebrate one last Christmas in their family home before she sells up and heads to Europe. Amid all the celebrations and domestic dramas, a mysterious stranger calls. Disfigured and cloaked, they invite him in until his extreme religious motives and anti-abortion message launches a rollercoaster of splatter and unearths shattering secrets.”
Lily James and Jai Courtney do make for a lovely couple, but this trailer kind of lacks passion… Let’s hope it won’t be missing from the film!
The movie The Exception is set to open in theaters on June 2, 2017.
