EQUITY (2016)










Good movie week so far. #98 is a really good financial thriller with quite a different take. Equity (with large portions shot in Philly) takes the typical Wall Street drama and flips the men and women! Anna Gunn of Breaking Bad is impressive as a banker who handles all kinds of high profile IPOs. Her last one didn't go so well. Sarah Megan Thomas (absolutely perfect) is Erin, the number two who wants a promotion and wants it all. But can women truly have it all? There i...s one moment where this actress just blew me away - and she never uttered a word! You'll know it when you see it. And James Purefoy is marvelous as the male version of a femme fatale. This is not a gimmicky movie - this is a robust script (directed and written by a team of talented women) that I relished watching and felt the ironies of the male-female
reversals. Solid story and it doesn't matter if you don't know all this financial stuff - Equity is well worth your time.

SHOULD TLA SEE THIS? Yes but she'll have to wear her power suit while watching.
