Russell Crowe’s directorial debut, The Water Diviner, made a huge splash in its native Australia.
In fact, Russell Crowe’s film won the Best Picture prize at the Aussies’ version of the Academy Awards.
But, when will audiences in the US have the pleasure of seeing Russell Crowe’s beautiful film?
In the spring, hopefully, because Russell Crowe made an amazing-looking movie.
Check it out:
According to the movie’s website, Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner “is an epic adventure set four years after the devastating battle of Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. Australian farmer Connor (Russell Crowe) 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 (Olga Kurylenko) who owns the hotel in which he stays.”
It continues, “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.”
What a great story! Russell Crowe is off to a great start as a director.
Russell Crowe has starred in a ton of great films over the years like The Gladiator and The Cinderella Man, and more recently, Man of Steele and Noah.
But, if this first directorial effort is any indication of what we can expect, then I hope Russell Crowe continues to direct films!
