Tonight a few of us went to see The Water Diviner – Russel Crowe’s new movie. The film is set in Turkey, shortly after the end of the First World War. The characterisations were fantastic; and I was especially impressed by the actor who played Ayshe’s son, Dylan Georgiades.
This film takes a sincere and sensitive approach to its historical setting, without ‘papering’ over the issues of the day. My eyes were glued to the screen for the entire 2 hours… I can’t believe this was Russel Crowe’s first attempt at directing. This film was perfectly conceived, scripted, shot and acted.
