Amity Shlaes: Why Atlas Shrugged is more relevant than ever

The film version being released to theatres today is updated to modern times, but the underlying theme is as timely as ever. It was produced on a tiny $20 million budget, and whether the other parts are completed most likely depends upon whether Part I can sell enough movie tickets and DVDs (and cable rights etc.) to keep the momentum going.

Leftist media outlets are using a mixture of ridicule and silence in order to minimise the impact of the film on the general public. Young minds (and superficial minds) in particular tend to be overly influenced by what is seen as "hot" or "the in thing."

The Washington DC premier of Atlas Shrugged Part 1

Word of mouth and new media are likely to draw more of a crowd to this film than mainstream reviews, to be sure.

Have you seen the movie yet? Looking at Rottentomatoes.com, the critics savaged the movie. Review from the public and IMDB.com have been positive.

HILN: No I haven't seen it yet. I'm not surprised that the critics are attacking a film which presents an ideological point of view that clashes with their own programming.

The film's fate will hinge on word of mouth and new media / social media.
