The Water Diviner
Okay, I've got a good recommendation for a movie I passed on in the theatres because the marketing campaign just wasn't compelling enough for me to put it on my list. Then, I recorded it on the DVR, but didn't watch it for a couple of weeks because I was curious, but not curious enough to make some dedicated time for it.
The movie is "The Water Diviner" with Russell Crowe and Olga Kurylenko. It is a great little movie. An excellent and understated performance by Russell Crowe and of course, Ms. Kurylenko is as beautiful and charming as ever. The basic plot is a man travels to Turkey in the aftermath of WWI to find the remains of his three sons who were killed at Gallipolli.
I'm not going to tell you much more because it would give away too much of the plot and too much of what happens during the course of the movie - but I will tell you that it is definitely worth watching. It is tender and heartfelt through and through.
