The perspective of an allegorical character on the idea of being a god in relation to human existence is presented in Exceptional Beings. The story follows the Greek gods Athena and Hermes, who meet Mina, a woman whose uncanny essence defies their four thousand years of knowledge. This causes them to question their Godhood. They travel through her life in response to their desperate need to comprehend responses to questions they had no idea existed.
The movie focuses more on humanity—or, should I say Godly drama?—than it does on action or fantasy, but the action and fantasy perfectly complement the story. The characters in the movie are taken from the book Godhood by Njedeh Anthony.
The film’s actors—Ciarra Carter, Dane Oliver, Rachel Thundat, Victoria Antonelli, and the indomitable Eric Roberts—do amazing work, elevating it to the level of a beautiful addiction. It was a crazy ride that played with the rehashed drama of Gods in modern times and twisted the mind. The best thing about it is how original it is, which will keep you wanting more.
