PanARMENIAN.Net – “The Promise”, a movie about the Armenian Genocide, is coming to Netflix on from August 8, the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) said on Facebook.
The war drama centers on a love story involving a medical student (Oscar Isaac), a journalist (Christian Bale), and an Armenian woman (Charlotte Le Bon). All three find themselves grappling with the Ottomans’ decision to begin rounding up and persecuting Armenians during the first genocide of the 20th century.
Produced by late Armenian-American businessman Kirk Kerkorian, the Armenian Genocide epic had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2016 and made it to the big screen in the United States in late April, 2017.
The film, which hails from award-winning director of “Hotel Rwanda,” Terry George, stars Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac, Academy Award winning actor Christian Bale and Charlotte Le Bon in the lead.
George, by the way, visited Armenia in September 2017 and spoke to PanARMENIAN.Net about the positive and negative feedback he received from Turkish individuals, about the most important part of his visit to Armenia and his future projects.
