Story


Russell Crowe's directorial debut, "The Water Diviner," is an epic and inspiring tale of one man's life-changing journey of discovery. Crowe plays Australian farmer Joshua Connor, who, in 1919, goes in search of his three missing sons, last known to have fought against the Turks in the bloody Battle of Gallipoli. Arriving in Istanbul, he is thrust into a vastly different world, where he encounters others who suffered their own losses in the conflict: Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), a strikingly beautiful but guarded hotelier raising a child alone; her young, spirited son, Orhan (Dylan Georgiades), who finds a friend in Connor; and Major Hasan (Yilmaz Erdogan), a Turkish officer who fought against Connor's boys and may be this father's only hope. With seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his path, Connor must travel across the battle-scarred Turkish landscape to find the truth... and his own peace.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..Crowe's always seemed like a pretty humorless guy, and his first turn in the director's chair is an earnest one, occasionally veering straight into melodrama..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..Crowe's old-fashioned war movie is slightly muddied by dubious politics and squishy sentiment..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
