The directorial debut of Russell Crowe, and drawing heavily on his ruggedly masculine screen image, this is a stirring throwback to sweeping epics of the past. Released in the centenary year of the Battle of Gallipoli, which became one of the defining conflicts of World War One, the film focuses on its aftermath. Crowe plays a widowed Australian farmer who heads to Turkey in search of his three sons, missing and presumed dead after the fighting. Themes of spirituality, grief, sacrifice, forgiveness, and familial love are mixed in with dramatically reconstructed battle scenes in this characteristically sincere and steadfast drama.
The Battle of Gallipoli is here shown through the eyes of two Australian athletes who volunteer for the army in time for the disastrous campaign.
