Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 18th at 4:30 for Equity at the West End Cinema . Look for Laine wearing a long blue dress in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
The corporate thriller Equity stars Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) as Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop. When she is passed over for a promotion at her firm, she fights for the opportunity to take a start-up public, hoping this promising IPO will secure her a place at the firms highest level. But when an employee at the start-up raises questions about a possible crack in the companys 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. Also starring James Purefoy, Sarah Megan Thomas and Alysia Reiner. Directed by Meera Menon.
