The Film Trilogy
Allured is a colorful story told in three films populated by clumsy Greek Gods, enchanted artificial intelligence (AI), and wonderfully naive humans.
The irascible Greek gods make a wager: which rules the universe: Love or Technology? To win the bet, they create Siro, an AI which plays out the bet by manipulating a very human love triangle here on planet Earth.
As ABBA sings in The Winner Takes It All:
The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
Zinya - a practical lawyer, Philip - a friendly neighborhood baker, and Louise - a long-distance truck driver fall into A Midsummer Night’s Dream-like love affair that sets off a chain of events that will never leave them the same – it also just happens to decide the fate of the world.
Our earthly setting vacillates between colorful, boisterous New Orleans and a cross country road trip on Route 66 – an American pastoral turned upside-down by divine interference.
But our gods are in for a surprise too: the AI grows stronger than their flimsy lightning rods and they ultimately seek the help of the very humans they set up.
To get a sense of the tone, think
Thor: Love & Thunder and Free Guy with the whimsical magic of La La Land.
