Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) dons power suits to star in a female-centric thriller set on Wall Street& Equity is a smart thriller set in the corporate world that disguises its modest budget with an intelligent script and a good set of hooks. Promoting itself as the first female-driven Wall Street movie, the films plot revolves mostly around female characters, while its also been directed (by Meera Menon), written (by Amy Fox) and produced (by co-stars Alysia Reiner and Sarah Megan Thomas) by women. And yet, perhaps the most winning thing about Equity is that its not some kind of worthy empowerment drama about sisters doing it for themselves. Instead, although sexism in the workplace is definitely addressed, it plays more like an old-school noir with the sexes casually reversed, featuring a deeply flawed protagonist (Gunn), a seductive but duplicitous homme fatale (James Purefoy) and others navigating their way through a miasma of an ethically shady urban world.
