‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’ is directed by George Miller from a screenplay by Miller and Augusta Gore; based upon the short story “The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye” by A.S. Byatt. The film stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton.
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.
