Academy Award winner Russell Crowe's directorial debut, The Water Diviner, is an epic drama adventure film set four years after the devastating battle of Gallipoli during World War I.
Having recently completed Noah and will soon be seen in Fathers and Daughters, Russell is best known for his role as Maximus in Gladiator in 2001 and this new film marks his first movie as an actor-director. Prolific Australian screenwriters Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios co-wrote the film starring French model-actress Olga Kurylenko, who plays the female lead role opposite Russell’s character.
The Water Diviner is an epic, heart-wrenching, romantic and inspiring adventure of discovery, which shows what lies beyond good and evil is love. Australian farmer Joshua Connor (Russell Crowe) travels to Turkey in 1919 to discover the fate of his three sons who were reported missing in action.
Initially blocked by military bureaucracy, his determination unwavering, he is helped first by the beautiful Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko) who owns the hotel he takes in Istanbul, and then by a Turkish Officer who had fought against Connor’s sons. He uses the instincts that make him a water diviner to sense their presence – but it seems that one of his boys is not resting in this ruined landscape. Could his eldest son still be alive?
Holding on to hope, Connor and Major Hasan must race against time and the dangers closing in from all sides to travel across the war-torn landscape and find the truth.
The Water Diviner opens in cinemas on 7 May, rated NC16 for violence.
