Sizing Up Jennifer Garner's 'Elektra'

In an interview for her new movie, Jennifer Garner says:

Women come up to me and say, “I am who I am because I read Elektra when I was a kid.” I realize how much this role means to people.

Sound familiar? It’s reminiscent of the things women say about Atlas Shrugged. Whether Elektra truly bears comparison to Atlas is beyond me, but clearly there is some parallel between Elektra and Dagny Taggart in terms of their impact on strong young women.
The movie is receiving a great deal of advance publicity, and Apple has posted not only the threatrical trailer but also a “martial arts featurette” (in which this quote from Garner appears) and three clips “inside the editing room” with director Rob Bowman.
