The independently produced feature film conclusion of this adaptation of Ayn Rand’s opus from television directing veteran John Putch (Cougar Town), who takes over for Paul Johansson, has Samantha Mathis stepping into the role of Dagny Taggart, the heroine who uncovers the answer to the global energy crisis and must do all she can to stave off an apocalyptic event.
The listing on the Internet Movie Database categories this film as drama/mystery/sci-fi, and it should be noted that Rand’s ideals and philosophies are cited as inspiration for Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan. Maybe we can learn a bit more about what makes him tick. Now in theaters. (PG-13) Not screened for review
