Atlas Shrugged
Available on Pluto TV
Part one of Ayn Rand's classic novel. Dagny Taggart (Taylor Schilling - Orange is the New Black) runs the largest remaining railroad company in America, Taggart Transcontinental, with intelligence, courage and integrity despite the systematic disappearance of her best and most competent workers. She is drawn to industrialist Henry Rearden (Grant Bowler), one of the few men whose genius and commitment to his own ideas match her own. Rearden's super-strength metal alloy, Rearden Metal, holds the promise that innovation can overcome the slide into anarchy. Using the untested Rearden Metal, they rebuild the critical Taggart rail line in Colorado and pave the way for oil titan Ellis Wyatt (Graham Beckel) to feed the flame of a new American Renaissance. Hope rises again, when Dagny and Rearden discover the design of a revolutionary motor, based on static electricity, in an abandoned engine factory.
