52 years after the book was first published, Part 1 (or 3) at last comes to the big screens. There is perhaps no more relevant of a book to come out in these troubled times than this.
For those who do not know the book, to quote a friend's description:
"Atlas Shrugged," is to Ayn Rand what "The Lord of the Rings" is to JRR Tolkien. It is about a strike against Taggart Transcontinental. The protagonist is Dagny Taggart, who is the COO of the company. (The book was written in the 1950s, so her title is the more old-fashioned "Vice President in Charge of Operations"). In a clever way the book switches you between the perspective of strikers and strike-breakers without you really realizing it.
