Three Thousand Years of Longing

A scholar by the name of Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton), content with life, encounters a Djinn portrayed by Idris Elba (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Sonic the Hedgehog 2”) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. Their conversation, in a hotel room in Istanbul, leads to consequences neither would have expected. What one does with three wishes is a question with endless answers, that may lead both to places they never thought possible. Adapted from AS Byatt’s novella “The Djinn in The Nightingale’s Eyes” and directed by George Miller (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), Three Thousand Years of Longing is described by critics as “marvellously imaginative in so many ways” (BBC).
