Brent Batten, Naples Daily News (FL) Atlas Shrugged movie |Atlas Shrugged |Individual Rights | Where is John Galt? In Naples on April 15, as it turns out. With a determination worthy of Dagny Taggart, Amy Schiffer has seen to it. Schiffer, marketing specialist for Silverspot cinema at The Mercato, made it her mission to get the film “Atlas Shrugged” shown in Naples on April 15, the day of its limited national release. The film, based on the 1957 novel by Ayn Rand, is more than just another independent film with a modest budget looking for an audience. The politically charged nature of Rand’s work, which celebrates the supremacy of the individual over the collective, gives it a ready-made fan base anxious to see if filmmakers Harmon Kaslow and John Aglialoro managed to compress the voluminous book into a watchable movie.
