Now Showing In Budapest: 'The Water Diviner'
"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."


Movie type: Drama War - Fans of Russell Crowe will especially this brutal historical war drama in which he stars and also directs. Olga Kurylenko fans will enjoy this dramatic showcase while Jai Courtney fans may be disappointed by his very small role. Brutal violence and dark subject matter make the film not for kids.

Director: Russell Crowe

Script: Andrew Knight

Starring: Connor - Russell Crowe, Cecil Hilton - Jai Courtney, Natalia - Isabel Lucas, Jemal - Cem Yilmaz

Length: 1 hr. 51 min.

Rated: R

Reviews:

NY Post: “Good  - Crowe's always seemed like a pretty humorless guy, and his first turn in the director's chair is an earnest one, occasionally veering straight into melodrama. But Crowe makes the most of his own quiet presence, and this ode to the world's never-recovered soldiers and their families is a fitting meditation on the insanity of war.”

Rolling Stone: “Good - Crowe strives to strike a universal chord about the futility of war. Simplistic? Maybe. But in crafting a film about the pain a parent feels after losing a child in battle, Crowe transcends borders and politics. It's not war being honored here, it's sacrifice and inconsolable loss.”

Roger Ebert: “Average -  Russell Crowe's directorial debut "The Water Diviner," about a man trying to find three sons who disappeared at the battle of Gallipoli in Turkey 100 years ago, is a film divided against itself.”

USA Today: Average -  Water Diviner trips up with its contrived mystical undertones and predictable love story. The striking and sweeping views of rural Australia stand out, as does the dramatic beauty of the Dardanelle seaside in Turkey. But the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived.”
