    Plot Summary: Dagny Taggart (Taylor Schilling) runs Taggart Transcontinental, the largest remaining railroad company in America, with intelligence, courage and integrity, despite the systematic disappearance of her best and most competent workers.

    She is drawn to industrialist Henry Rearden (Grant Bowler), one of the few men whose genius and commitment to his own ideas match her own. Rearden's super-strength metal alloy, Rearden Metal, holds the promise that innovation can overcome the slide into anarchy.

    Using the untested Rearden Metal, they rebuild the critical Taggart rail line in Colorado and pave the way for oil titan Ellis Wyatt (Graham Beckel) to feed the flame of a new American Renaissance.

    Hope rises again, when Dagny and Rearden discover the design of a revolutionary motor based on static electricity - in an abandoned engine factory - more proof to the sinister theory that the "men of the mind" (thinkers, industrialists, scientists, artists, and other innovators) are "on strike" and vanishing from society.


    --------------

    I've never heard of the cast and crew before and the trailer is slightly disappointing, so the wise thing to do would be not to get my hopes up too high.

    But it's Atlas Shrugged dammit !!

    to call it exaggerated would be an understatement

    nope, it doesn't seem too interesting (shallow biased political topics on the surface), furthermore it has a specific flawed philosophical agenda embedded within (an indoctrination vessel for 'objectivism'), disguised as societal criticism

    Hahahahha....oh man...

    My college has a book club that is quite famous and respected in the city.People from all over are members of this club and we have discussions and talks on books ranging from Enid Blyton to John Steinbeck to Sigmund Freud

    The liveliest and the longest one we had was dissecting this Ayn Rand's book...

    I wish there was something I could write within these few spaces that would show you the folly of your thought but to condense the 1000+ pages book to a few sentences(like you did) is impossible...

    But what I can do,is show this comment of yours to a few of my friends...

    so why don't you? no one expects a recapitulation of the whole book, take a few examples/quotes that were the most impressive/inspiring (or the opposite) and then lets see your review/dissection of those at work
