Ron Paulian Economist Elected Prez


I'm often fearful when I learn about new feature-length movies that are explicitly libertarian because they often suffer from tiny budgets and inexperience among the actors and crew.

In this case however, the movie looks to have an adequate budget (based on the diversity and quality of shots in the trailer) and the actors have real and lengthy IMDB credits.

Alongside Night Official Teaser Trailer

According to IMDB:

Alongside Night is the story of the final economic collapse of the United States as seen through the eyes of 16-year-old Elliot Vreeland, searching for his missing Nobel-laureate-economist father, and the mysterious teenage "Lorimer" whom Elliot meets in a black-market underground, whose own father might be the reason Elliot's father is missing.

According to the Director:

This is a teaser trailer for the new futuristic political thriller, Alongside Night, based on the J. Neil Schulman novel praised by Milton Friedman, Anthony Burgess, Glenn Beck [even a broken clock...], and Ron Paul, written, produced, and directed by the original novel's author.
