George Miller, the director who gave us the MAD MAX films, BABE, PIG IN THE CITY, and HAPPY FEET, has a new movie in theaters called THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING, a reimagining of the old story about a genie trapped in a lamp who gives three wishes to the person who releases him. The film is a fairly tale for adults, a very creative fantasy about the realistic emotions of the magical genie and the cautious woman who accidentally releases him. Two fine English actors, Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba, star in this visually stunning movie that will cast a spell over audiences who open themselves up to it. A THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING has a lot to say about the mysteries of life. For example, the Djinn marvels at the innovations of 21st century technology and wonders why humans haven’t made similar progress in understanding themselves and each other.(Only in Theaters)
