‘Atlas Shrugged’ on the Big Screen

According to Variety, Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged “may finally be brought to the big screen after years of false starts.”

As was evidenced by previous failed attempts, it won’t be easy to adapt this book into a movie.

The primary difficulty is that any adaptation requires leaving some things on the cutting room floor. However, true devotee’s of the book will likely object to any edits.

On a positive note, this is a chance for mainstream Americans to be exposed to a film that reinforces the message that individualism should be rewarded by society, and that socialism and dictatorship should be eschewed.
