The first trailer for George Miller‘s latest film, Three Thousand Years of Longing, has released online. It opened earlier today at the Cannes International Film Festival with much critical acclaim, receiving one of their standing ovations in the process.
Written by Miller and Augusta Gore, based on the short story The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye by A.S. Byatt, the movie stars Tilda Swinton, Idris Elba, Aamito Lagum, Burcu Göldegar, and Matteo Bocelli.
Its plot synopsis, from Production Weekly, reads “A scholar, content with life, encounters a Djinn 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.”
