Forget the Boxing Day Sales crushes in Australia – the pushing and shoving, the queues, the undignified haggling. Wouldn’t you rather be sitting, relaxing with friends in the dark, eating popcorn in an air-conditioned cinema as the curtain is drawn on the first sessions of The Water Diviner?

Here are a couple of recent reviews from the News.com.au and The Sydney Morning Herald to give you a hint of what to expect.

The Water Diviner also opens in 600 cinemas across Turkey today, December 26. I for one am very excited to see how Turkish audiences respond to our film. Here is a recent interview I did with Jane Akatay of the Fethiye Times, if you’re are interested in the writing process and the genesis of the story.
