An extended, behind-the-scenes featurette for The Water Diviner has provided a first look at Russell Crowe‘s upcoming directorial debut.  The story centers on an Australian man (Crowe) who travels to Turkey to attempt to locate the bodies of his three sons, who were killed there during WWI.  The featurette is narrated by Crowe, and his passion for the material really comes through.  Even though this is only his first feature, it looks like he’s come up with something that has a grand scope but retains its focus on the intimate character drama.  This is definitely one I’m going to be keeping on my radar, and although it doesn’t currently have a release date, I hope we’ll get to see it soon.

Hit the jump to check out The Water Diviner featurette. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Jai Courtney, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, Ryan Corr, Dan Wyllie, Damon Herriman, Jacqueline McKenzie, Michael Dorman, Megan Gale, and Dylan Georgiades.

Here’s the synopsis for The Water Diviner:

The film is set four years after the devastating battle of Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. Australian farmer Connor (Crowe) travels to Istanbul to discover the fate of his sons, reported missing in action, where he forges a relationship with the beautiful Turkish woman (Kurylenko) 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.
