This epic war drama portrays life in Istanbul during World War I and the accompanying dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, including the Armenian genocide (1915–17). Starring Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Le Bon, the film raises important questions about ethnic tensions and violence that erupted with the fall of the empire, resulting in thousands of deaths and irrevocably altered lives.
