The Promise DVD|
It is 1914. As the Great War looms, the mighty Ottoman Empire is crumbling. Constantinople, the once vibrant, multicultural capital on the shores of the Bosporus, is about to be consumed by chaos. Michael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac), arrives in the cosmopolitan hub as a medical student determined to bring modern medicine back to Siroun, his ancestral village in Southern Turkey where Turkish Muslims and Armenian Christians have lived side by side for centuries. Photo-journalist Chris Myers (Christian Bale), has come here only partly to cover geo-politics. He is mesmerized by his love for Ana (Charlotte le Bon), an Armenian artist he has accompanied from Paris after the sudden death of her father. When Michael meets Ana, their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between the two men. As the Turks form an alliance with Germany and the Empire turns violently against its own ethnic minorities, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to survive even as events threaten to overwhelm them. The one promise that must be kept is to live on and tell the story.from£8.49 | RRP:

Terry George directs this historical drama about the Armenian Genocide starring Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon and Christian Bale. The film follows Michael Boghosian (Isaac), a young medical student from a small Armenian village who promises himself to a wealthy local girl in order to fund his studies in Constantinople. While there he meets American reporter Christopher Myers (Bale) and his Armenian girlfriend Ana (Le Bon), who he soon develops strong feelings for. Narrowly avoiding military service with the help of a rich friend, Michael and Ana are thrust together by an eruption of anti-Armenian violence in the city which leaves both in severe danger. With Chris trying to report on the atrocities the Ottoman government continues to deny, Michael is forced to travel back to his village in an attempt to save his family as he and Ana look for a way to survive the bloodshed.
