The Armenian experience is not widely publicized. The American stance is that Turkey is an ally therefore we don't need to mention what happened. It was genocide. This movie presents more of a personal account of families, friends and loved ones who were affected by the Turks driving them out of their homeland. The acting was excellent with special kudos to Oscar Isaac for his sensitive portrayal of Michael Boghosian a man passionate about medicine and his responsibilities. If you are looking for a movie that will enlighten as well as entertain I highly recommend The Promise.
