Three Thousand Years of Longing Featurette – The Djinn and the Genius (2022)

This is how the IMDB describes this movie:

Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic – content with life and a creature of reason.

While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

This presents two problems.

First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong.

The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past.

Eventually, she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.

This is how Wikipedia describes this movie:

Three Thousand Years of Longing is a 2022 fantasy film co-written and directed by George Miller.

This is how The IMDb describes this movie:

A conquistador in Mayan country searches for the tree of life to free his captive queen; a medical researcher, working with various trees, looks for a cure that will save his dying wife; a space traveler, traveling with an aged tree encapsulated within a bubble, moves toward a dying star that’s wrapped in a nebula; he seeks eternity with his love. The stories intersect and parallel; the quests fail and succeed. —jhailey@hotmail.com
