What makes this such a vital feminist film, even when its other qualities are often few and far between, is how defiantly it internalizes the idea that strong female characters have nothing to do with decency, and everything to do with depth.
Ultimately, I found the story surrounding "Equity" - that it is a movie about women on Wall Street, financed largely by actual women on Wall Street - more interesting than the movie itself, but it does contain its share of memorable moments.
You don't need to be a woman working in finance to get a shivery thrill-and possibly a few chills-from watching Equity, a modestly scaled but perceptive drama about an investment banker who just happens to be a woman.
Menon's direction is merely efficient, but the script, by Amy Fox ... gives the women's personal lives equal weight, as they struggle to balance family and work and face male clients whose interests aren't all business.
