“The Promise” is a new film set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire that stars Oscar Isaac as Michael Boghosian, a medical student who has come to the vibrant city of Constantinople in 1914, determined to bring modern medicine back his ancestral village. While in Constantinople, Michael meets and befriends photo-journalist Chris Myers (Christian Bale) and Ana (Charlotte le Bon), a beautiful and intelligent Armenian artist from Paris. Both men spark an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry.

Their conflicting passions must be deferred when the Ottoman Empire turns violently against its own ethnic and religious minorities. Michael, Chris, and Ana must join forces to survive injustice and persecution of Christians throughout the Empire.

The film is directed by Academy-Award winner Terry George (Hotel Rwanda, Hart’s War) will be in theaters April 21.
