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.

Russell Crowe did an amazing job!! ❤️
Didn’t know what to expect when I watched this movie, but the movie definitely exceeded my expectations. If you like good war drama’s this is the movie for you. I watched this movie start to finish without being distracted, it definitely kept my attention and had me waiting to see what happens next. Crowe did a great job directing, keeping a good story line with the necessary amount of battle scenes without going overboard with it. Acting by Russel Crowe was great as well as acting from supporting roles.
Great movie, don`t believe the critics. I really enjoyed it
Cool story and well acted and directed.
