“An inspiring and sweeping romantic epic.” Deadline
A love story plays out in the final days of the Ottoman Empire in The Promise, a sweeping romance starring Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon and Academy Award winner Christian Bale.
In 1914, Armenian medical student Mikael (Isaac) travels to the grand city of Constantinople to train as a doctor. There, he falls in love with Ana (Le Bon), a French-educated Armenian artist who is already in a relationship with the fiery Chris (Bale), an American journalist dedicated to exposing political truth. Drawn to each other regardless, Mikael and Ana are torn apart when they find themselves on the run for their lives as war breaks out and the Empire turns against its own people.
From the director of Hotel Rwanda, The Promise is both an intimate love story and a heartrending historical drama.
