About the film: 

World Premiere out of competition at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. A lonely and bitter British woman discovers an ancient bottle while on a trip to Istanbul and unleashes a djinn who offers her three wishes. Filled with apathy, she is unable to come up with one until his stories spark in her a desire to be loved.

“Great pleasure ensues from the constant presence of both Elba and Swinton… both performances are nothing short of marvelous.”

—Todd McCarthy, Deadline Hollywood
