The potential Oscar vehicle stars Oscar Isaac and Christian, which is all I needed to know.
This looks really good. The film looks a little Oscar baity but it also looks like it may deserve it, unlike “American Beauty.” Honestly I forgot this movie was happening, so this was a nice surprise.
Set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire, The Promise follows a love triangle between Michael, a brilliant medical student, the beautiful and sophisticated Ana, and Chris – a renowned American journalist based in Paris.
“The Promise” hits theaters sometime this year.
