“Destined to become a cult favourite”- (The Times)
“ Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton weave lavish tales spanning millennia from the confines of a hotel room in George Miller’s latest offering” (London Evening Standard)
FROM THE DIRECTOR OF MAD MAX: FURY ROAD.
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.
