This Christmas, from Oscar-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis, comes Genie, a holiday fairytale comedy about a genie, a man, and landing one last chance to fix the mess you’ve made of your life. With his job, life and family unraveling around him, a despondent Bernard (Paapa Kwakye Essiedu) dusts off a jewelry box and unintentionally releases genie Flora (Melissa McCarthy), who just might be able to help him. Maybe. It’s a longshot, frankly. In the process, Flora and Bernard will discover that love, and an unexpected friendship, can unleash a special holiday magic all its own.

Director: Sam Boyd
Written by: Richard Curtis, based on his teleplay “Bernard and the Genie”
Producers: Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Riva Marker, Richard Curtis
