The Promise: Christian Bale Talks About Playing A Hero In The Armenian Genocide

A hero. Always.

After more than one hundred years, Turkey has never formally recognize the Armenian genocide. The Promise will be one of the first major films that uses the fateful event in the early 20th century as a backdrop for its romantic drama.

The film stars Oscar Isaacs as an Armenian medical student, who promised to return to his fiancée after his studies. However, he falls in love with another Armenian girl and creates a romantic rivalry with an American journalist. As the love triangle is formed, the Ottoman Empire starts to crumble as the Turks try to relocate and to eliminate the Armenians.

The film also stars Christian Bale, Charlotte Le Bron, Angela Sarafyan, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Jean Reno and James Cromwell.

LRM had an exclusive sit-down interview with Bale as we discussed his role and knowledge of the Armenian genocide in The Promise.

The Promise is in theaters nationwide today.
