The Promise wastes an outstanding cast and powerful real-life story on a love triangle that frustratingly fails to engage. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

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.

  • Sep 06, 2017
    "The Promise" tells an important story. The acting and costumes are reasonably good, but it seems as if it might have been a bit watered-down -- almost like a Hallmark presentation of the Armenian genocide. It's good, but it could have been a lot better.
