While sojourning in Istanbul, repressed British professor Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) purchased an antique bottle... and, once back in her hotel room, unwittingly released the Djinn (Idris Elba) trapped inside for millennia. As she's dubious regarding the grateful genie's offer of three wishes, he responds by sharing a trio of tales concerning his circumstances and how ill-fated love played into them. George Miller's fanciful and visually spectacular take on an A.S. Byatt short story co-stars Aamito Lagum. 108 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
