The Promise - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Empires fall, love survives. When Michael (Oscar Isaac), a brilliant medical student, meets Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between Michael and Ana’s boyfriend Chris (Christian Bale), a famous American photojournalist dedicated to exposing political truth. As the Ottoman Empire crumbles into war-torn chaos, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to get their people to safety and survive themselves. The Promise is directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George.

MOVIE REVIEW

Rarely do you encounter such uplifting material as The Promise, a movie that depicts the Armenian genocide where Turkey systematically killed up to 1.5 million people during World War I. The drama, which stars Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale and Charlotte Le Bon, attempts, and ultimately fails, to balance historical depiction of the atrocities with a love triangle story.
