Reviews:
"This tony drawing-room period piece, anchored by Christopher Plummer’s wily take on an aging German monarch who longs for the past and abhors the present, is served with a side of steamy interludes of sex-laced intrigue." - 06/02/2017 RogerEbert.com


"THE EXCEPTION is a handsomely mounted World War II-era romantic thriller, enlivened by vibrant performances and vivid sexual encounters and inspired by a little-known footnote to history, the story of a ruler who left but never went away." - 06/01/2017 Los Angeles Times


"[E]fficiently directed by David Leveaux from a screenplay by Simon Burke....THE EXCEPTION is a diverting and occasionally exciting film..." - 06/01/2017 New York Times


"Elegant, well-acted....THE EXCEPTION pokes fun at Hitler and his lockstep followers, while presenting its German protagonists as charming pacifists who’d rather be feeding the ducks and chasing skirts than waging genocide and world domination." - 06/02/2017 Variety
