Right off the bat, if Christian Bale is in it, you know this movie is not going to half ass anything. That guy goes all in on his roles and The Promise looks like it isn’t going to be an exception. It is about the Ottoman Empire crumbling and the genocide that accompanied it, which I have to confess I know little to nothing about. A love triangle between Bale’s character, a photojournalist, a brilliant medical student and Bale’s girlfriend is set against this intense backdrop for what looks like a very emotional, educating and dramatic movie. It hits theaters on April 21st, so you can plan on having at least one movie you and your girl can agree on.
