A look at famous writer, fierce lobbyist and founder of the Objectivist movement, Ayn Rand. The Emotionalists, opens amid Ayn’s love affair with psychologist Nathaniel Branden, which reveals cracks in her austere veneer, and her inherent hypocrisy, as all those around her struggle to find where reason ends and honest emotion begins.
