Australian/United States/Turkish—Russell Crowe (Conner) is an intuitive but also a rugged Australian trying to work out a living in the Australian outback with his wife and three sons. The three sons go to war in 1915 and are sent to Turkey to fight the Battle of Gallipoli. None come back, so he goes to look for them. It's right after the war, and the Turks and Australians go back to the battle scene where a half a million men on both sides died. Connor intuits where his sons died and their bones are dug up, except one of his sons is missing. It comes out that he was taken prisoner and later let go and went to the mountains to live in a temple. Connor meets the Turkish general who was a man of honor who helps him find his son. It's an exciting adventure and an epic film—one of the best I've seen—with beautiful cinematography. Olga Kurylenko, Yilmaz Erdogan. English, Turkish, Greek, and Russian with English subtitles.
