The Person, Not The Legend
The movie is simply a collection of interviews she has made with television hosts such as Donahue and Mike Wallace, as well as still pictures from her early life, before she became a household name. Whatever you think of her or her philosophies, you at least hear her describe herself and how she adopted the attitudes she did.
And who was she? A girl born in Russia before the 1917 revolutions, how she felt as a child and how she got along-or didn't-with her various family members. She then talked about her education and university years, and why she wanted to come to the United States, and while there, how she supported herself and found a husband.
The movie does not cover the years after she found literary success with "The Fountainhead" or "Atlas Shrugged", but not every biopic has to be a Ken Burns mega production.
