About the Movie

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 have 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 Erdoğan), a Turkish officer who fought against Connor's boys and who 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: You don't have to be a historian to wonder about the timing of the opening or a critic to regret that Mr. Crowe has signed onto a preposterous, would-be sweeping historical romance that's far too slight and silly to carry the weight of real history. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Apr 23, 2015

Fresh: Crowe strives to strike a universal chord about the futility of war. Simplistic? Maybe. But in crafting a film about the pain a parent feels after losing a child in battle, Crowe transcends borders and politics. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Apr 24, 2015

Fresh: It suggests nothing so much as a movie version of a book-club novel that has yet to be written. That doesn't have to be an insult, and it isn't. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Apr 23, 2015

Fresh: Indeed, this is the 51-year-old Crowe's first time as a movie director, but he's hardly a novice actor stepping behind the camera for some sort of vanity project. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, Apr 26, 2015

Previews always kill the movies

Just watched the whole movie by watching the preview.

Anzac Turkish view

This great movie has a heart.
Blending different worlds in one great movie.
Great job Russell Crowe.

Ottoman Empire

I enjoyed the story line and how this character transformed his thinking about the enemy. I believe it shows how the civilized world thinks compared to ancient tribal thinking. The Ottoman Empire was once a force and was torn apart by wars.
