The Water Diviner
Russell Crowe's directorial debut, THE WATER DIVINER, is an epic adventure set four years after the devastating battle of Gallipoli during World War I. Australian farmer Joshua Connor travels to Turkey in 1919 to discover the fate of his three sons, reported missing in action. Initially blocked by military bureaucracy, his determination unwavering, he is helped first by the beautiful Ayshe, who owns the hotel in which he stays in Istanbul and then by Turkish Officer Major Hasan, who had fought against Joshua’s sons. Holding on to hope, they must travel across the war-torn landscape to find the truth, and for Joshua to find his own peace.
