On the eve of World War I there were two million Armenians in the crumbling Ottoman Empire, and by 1922 less than a quarter remained.
The genocide of the Armenian people is something that, to this day, many remain blissfully ignorant of – the Turkish government has still not taken responsibility. The Promise sets out to change that, bringing this shameful chapter in the country’s history to light and sweetening the bitter tale with a love triangle involving Christian Bale’s American journalist, Charlotte Le Bon’s beautiful tutor Ana, and Oscar Isaac’s Armenian medical student. As heavy as it sounds, but important.
