Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” was one of the most influential books of the 20th Century. It also became a controversial independent 3-Part film with a mixture of Rand’s economic and political philosophies intricately interwoven with a science fiction twist, romance, intrigue and mystery.
The first two films (Atlas Shrugged I & Atlas Shrugged II) were received with mixed reviews due to the entrepreneurial and political nature inherent in Rand’s worldview but the sci-fi elements were a huge hit with those who love the genre.
Now Atlas Shrugged III a.k.a. “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?,” the third and final film of the series is available on DVD and Blu-ray.
Approaching collapse, the nation’s economy is quickly eroding. As crime and fear take over the countryside, the government continues to exert its brutal force against the nation’s most productive who are mysteriously vanishing – leaving behind a wake of despair. One man has the answer. One woman stands in his way. Some will stop at nothing to control him. Others will stop at nothing to save him. He swore by his life. They swore to find him. Who is John Galt?
Atlas Shrugged III stars Kristoffer Polaha (Ringer), Laura Regan (Mad Men), Rob Morrow (Entourage) and Greg Germann (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit). It is directed by James Manera who also co-wrote the adapted screenplay.
