The Promise starring Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon and Christian Bale brings a story set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire to life.

Brilliant medical student Michael (Oscar Isaac) meets beautiful dance instructor Ana (Charlotte Le Bon) in late 1914. Their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between Michael and Ana’s boyfriend (Christian Bale), an American photojournalist who’s dedicated to exposing the truth. As the Ottoman Empire crumbles into war-torn chaos, their conflicting passions must be deferred as they join forces to get themselves and their people to safety.

Whilst humanity has turned a blind eye to the Armenian Genocide, Terry George humanizes their struggle in this extremely compelling drama playing out in the setting of opulent pre-war Istanbul. If you love historical dramas this one is for you, even if you are not particularly interested in this aspect of World War 1.
