Movies: Equity

(Drivebycuriosity) - Wall Street is occupied by men. But the film "Equity" shows a Wall Street which is ruled by women (imdb). Is that a better Wall Street? See by yourself (this is a spoiler free blog).

The movie, written & directed by women, focuses on Naomi, a leading investment banker who is preparing the IPO of a glamorous Internet company. How does this go in a world full of financial sharks?

I found the flick mildly entertaining. The story is complicated, but so is the world of finance. The plot also tells how career women deal with each other. I enjoyed to watch Anna Gun, the wife from "Breaking Bad", in the leading role, plus Alysia Reiner, known from "Orange is the new Black", Sarah Megan Thomas and the rest of the cast.

"Equity" is an interesting take on the complexity of the finance world.
