Silver Circle was recently granted access to a sneak peek of ‘Atlas Shrugged: Part I,’ based on Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged. As filmmakers ourselves, the excitement and anticipation grew as we entered the screening in San Diego where others buzzed about their expectations for the film. The screenwriter, John Aglialoro, was there to present the film and take questions following its debut. The filmmakers were also giving away one version of the movie poster, which was a simple white poster with the words “Who is John Galt?” scribbled on them. I didn’t manage to get my hands on the poster, but if I were you I’d grab one if you get the opportunity. It is a part of history.
The film surprised me immediately when placed the story in modern times. As timeless as Ayn Rand’s novel was, I felt like I lived in the mid 20th century while reading it. If you can imagine the differences this would play in understanding the world around the characters, you can understand the process of acclimation to watch this film after reading the book.Published in
