"So you think that money is the root of all evil?" said Francisco d'Anconia. "Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?
Based upon the controversial 1957 novel by Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged follows the struggles of Dagny Taggart, a railroad heiress trying to maintain her integrity, and keep her family's railroad alive in the midst of a rapidly decaying world. She faces increasingly corrupt government agencies, the cowardly incompetence of her own brother, and the systematic loss of her best and most competent workers. As she works to overcome each obstacle, she begins to detect a pattern, and suspect a sinister force working against her. All across the country, there is a growing sense of helplessness, often summed up in a catch phrase that everyone seems to know, but no one knows the origin of - Who is John Galt?.
"Who is John Galt?" Ah, so that's what this book was about! Atlas Productions has released the trailer on YouTube (via SlashFilm) for Paul Johansson's adaptation of Atlas Shrugged, that epic Ayn Rand novel that everyone should be familiar with. The cast includes relative newcomer Taylor Schilling ("Mercy") as railroad exec Dagny Taggart, as well as Edi Gathegi, Matthew Marsden, Michael O'Keefe, Michael Lerner, Jon Polito, Graham Beckel and Patrick Fischler. To be honest, this looks a bit more like a TV movie and the acting looks kind of mediocre, but at least they're trying. You never know, it could be great. Watch below!
