The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present EQUITY, a financial thriller about women on Wall Street.
When senior investment banker Naomi Bishop (two-time Emmy Award-winner Anna Gunn) is passed over for a promotion at her firm, she fights for the opportunity to take a start-up public, hoping this promising initial public offering (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 rumors 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. [2016, USA, Runtime: 100 min, Rating: R]
J.R. Jones of the “Seattle Times” states EQUITY is “an expertly crafted financial thriller”. Directed, written, produced, and financed by women, EQUITY is a collaboration among women in entertainment and business leaders in finance—the real-life women of Wall Street—who chose to invest in this film because they wanted to see their story told.
