Equity

Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) leads this women-driven Wall Street thriller as a senior investment banker trying to extinguish a corrupt financial scandal.

When Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop (Gunn) is passed over for a promotion at her firm, she fights for the opportunity to take a start-up public, hoping this promising IPO will secure her a place at the firm’s highest level. But when an employee at the start-up raises questions about a possible crack in the company’s walls, Naomi must decide whether to investigate rumours that may compromise the deal, or push forward with the confidence her superiors expect.

Soon Naomi finds herself tangled in a web of deception and office politics and begins to question if there is anyone she can trust. As the IPO draws closer, Naomi sees that the choices she has made for her career have left her very much alone. Forced to reexamine the rules of the cutthroat world she has always loved she finds herself in a fight for her very survival.

While the severity of the film's environment convinces, the specifics of Amy Fox's screenplay are less consistently persuasive.

Menon's direction is merely efficient, but the script, by Amy Fox ... gives the women's personal lives equal weight, as they struggle to balance family and work and face male clients whose interests aren't all business.

"Equity" invites us to slot its characters into stereotypical frames and then breaks the glass.

Ultimately, I found the story surrounding "Equity" - that it is a movie about women on Wall Street, financed largely by actual women on Wall Street - more interesting than the movie itself, but it does contain its share of memorable moments.

A smart thriller set in the corporate world that disguises its modest budget with an intelligent script and good set of hooks.
