EQUITY - Review
Release Date: August 26, 2016
Director: Meera Menon
Stars: Anna Gunn, James Purefoy, Sarah Megan Thomas
Plot: A powerful, Wall Street woman fights to take a company public, but ethics and legal issues keep coming up
Clint Says: Wait for the DVD
If you liked Anna Gunn in her "take charge" mode in BREAKING BAD, you will love her performance in EQUITY. She is strong, powerful, smart, and doesn't take anything from anybody. If the rest of the movie were as good as she is this would be an award winner.
While the story is interesting, it is told in a choppy way where the director expects the audience to make some pretty big leaps, and connect some distant dots. There are also several moments that don't ring true to the story. Plus, a couple of story lines that don't get resolved completely.
Overall, it's not a bad movie, but it isn't one you are going to rave about to your friends. Don't let this Wall Street (non)thriller steal your money.
