CHICAGO – Actor and Oscar Winner Russell Crowe, known for films such as “L.A. Confidential,” “Gladiator,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “Cinderella Man,” “Les Miserables” and “Man of Steel,” breaks out in his directorial debut and also stars in “The Water Diviner,” a story of war and his native Australia.

The film centers on Crowe as Connor, an Australian farmer who sends his three sons to World War One in 1915. The fate of the boys is the driver for the story, that takes Crowe’s character into former war zones and an exotic land. Filled with beautiful imagery under his direction, the movie – adapted from a novel – is also an homage to his native Australia, and the sacrifices that families make in times of war. “The Water Diviner” opens wide on April 24th, 2015.

Photographer Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com was at the Red Carpet for the Chicago premiere of “The Water Diviner,” at the Kerasotes Showplace Icon Theatre in the city, and captured this Exclusive Portrait.
