"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch Oscar Isaac & Christian Bale in The Promise trailer



A humble Armenian apothecary, Michael (Oscar Isaac), leaves his village in southern Anatolia to study medicine in the capital. Michael has betrothed himself to a village girl in order to bankroll his studies with her dowry. His mother (Shohreh Aghdashloo) warns him not to marry for money, but Michael feels confident that, with time, he and his wife-to-be will come to love each other.

But that is before Michael meets Ana (Charlotte Le Bon). Graceful, Paris-educated, and talented at both drawing and dance, Ana seems the girl of Michael’s dreams. But Michael is determined to keep his promise. What’s more, Ana is already in a relationship with Chris (Christian Bale), a worldly American photo-journalist. These three souls are swept up in a drama greater than any of them could have imagined when the Ottoman Empire joins the Central Powers and widespread violence begins.

Directed by Terry George, the film stars Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon, Christian Bale, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Angela Sarafyan, Jean Reno, James Cromwell, Daniel Giminez Cacho, and Marwan Kenzari.
