Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More

Maybe I'm suffering from overexpectation, but I was pretty unimpressed. We saw Stoppard's "The Real Thing" some time back and were amazed at how GOOD it was. I was hoping for the same. Press clippings on this show have all been good - but I think I have that one figured out. The main characters are reporters/correspondents so the reviewers (who are part of the press) really liked the show.
Acting was ok. Special note on the younger reporter - this actor was very good - probably the highlight. Everybody else seemed like they were walking through their lines.
Sorry - I'm a big Remy Bumppo fan, but this one didn't do it for me.
