From the Atlas Shrugged website;
Atlas Shrugged is a novel that has generated inspiration and controversy since its publication in 1957.
Its theme is the role of individual achievement in society and its goal is to demonstrate what can happen when individual achievement is undervalued, suppressed and demonized. Complex characters embody heroism and evil, in a plot that combines drama, mystery, romance, and science fiction - the result is ultimately inspirational, not apocalyptic.
Dagny Taggart is one of the finest female heroines in modern literature: intelligent, courageous, and as beautiful as she is strong. She is a rare screen example of life lived on one's own terms, for one's own values. Steel magnate Henry Rearden says, "My goal is to make money" with pride. He is an industrialist who improves the quality of life for all - and values his reward. Atlas Shrugged's villains are evil, but as familiar as our local neighbor - as they undercut and subvert talent and achievement.
Atlas Shrugged is in limited release across the U.S.A. It is being presented in three parts. The first part will be debuted on April 15th, 2011, with the next two parts scheduled to be released on April 15th of 2012 and 2013 respectively.
