Academy Award winner Russell Crowe makes his directorial debut on "The Water Diviner," an epic and inspiring tale of one man's life-changing journey of discovery. Crowe also stars in the film as 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 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: Ayse, a strikingly beautiful but guarded hotelier raising a child alone; her young, spirited son, Orhan, who finds a friend in Connor; and Major Hasan, 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.

Crowe directed "The Water Diviner" from a screenplay by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios. The team collaborating with Crowe behind the scenes included Oscar-winning director of photography Andrew Lesnie ("The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"), production designer Christopher Kennedy, editor Matt Villa, and costume designer Tess Schofield. The score was composed by two-time Oscar nominee David Hirschfelder ("Elizabeth," "Shine").

"The Water Diviner" recently won three Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards in the categories of Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Yılmaz Erdoğan and Best Costume Design. It had received five additional nominations, for Best Lead Actor (Crowe), Best Supporting Actress (McKenzie), Best Original Screenplay, Best Production Design and Best Editing.
