Acclaimed actor Russell Crowe makes his directorial debut with the upcoming drama The Water Diviner, which has just debuted its first international trailer and poster.


Russell Crowe stars alongside former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko in an epic adventure set four years after the devastating battle of Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. Australian farmer Connor travels to Istanbul to discover the fate of his sons, reported missing in the action, where he forges a relationship with the beautiful Turkish woman who owns the hotel in which he stays.

Holding on to hope, and with the help of a Turkish Officer, Connor embarks on a journey across the country to find the truth about the fate of his sons. The Water Diviner is an extraordinary tale of love, hope and heroism.
