THE PROMISE from Open Road Films

Open Road Film releases the trailer for  THE PROMISE, an epic and poignant film set during the last days of The Ottoman Empire.

Golden-Globe winning actor Oscar Isaac stars 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 (played by 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 the events that threaten to overwhelm them, and the injustice and persecution of Christians throughout the Empire.

Opening in theaters April 21, THE PROMISE is directed by Academy-Award winner Terry George (Hotel Rwanda, Hart’s War).
