So Ayn Rand's most popular work (or maybe its competition with Fountainhead can never really be settled in the favour of one) is finally going to be out in its movie form this April!

Well, at least the first of the trilogy that is, which is how the film makers plan to adapt the book - in a total of 3 films.

So this is asking all those who are Rand fans, or critics, about your expectations from the movie. About how far you think the movie can justify the book, or if it can be the rare case of outdoing the literature!

In my personal opinion, I'm most looking forward to seeing a face being given to my absolute fav Frisco, or Francisco (lol), while also curiously awaiting the movie's translation of that 100 pages or so speech by John Galt (who I found absolutely redundant in the book btw)...

share your views and expectations, and anticipations please!

cheers,
nj
