Interesting that the setting is modern America as opposed to the original setting of the book. This should make the similarities between Rand’s original plot and Obama’s America all the more palpable.
Fitting that they’d cut it up into more than one movie. After all, it’s a long book.
Also fitting that they’re making it now given the resurgence in popularity of Rand’s works and philosophy. Just last year the book hit an all-time high in annual sales some 53 years after it was first published.
