TRIBECA TALKS AFTER THE MOVIE

EQUITY

Directed by Meera Menon
FEATURE NARRATIVE 100 Minutes New York Premiere
FILM GUIDE EQUITY
In 2013, Meera Menon won the Tribeca Film Festival’s inaugural Nora Ephron Prize for her debut feature, Farah Goes Bang. She returns with even bolder evidence of her place among the country’s most promising and impressive young filmmakers; a forceful correction to the Wall Street thriller’s masculine slant.

Denied a promotion, investment banker Naomi Bishop (Anna Gunn) aims to one-up her male counterparts by snagging the IPO for the hottest new social media platform. Her success quickly sours as a scandal threatens the razor-thin divide she maintains between the personal and political. No one can be trusted. Bishop soon faces a daunting attack from an estranged friend-turned-prosecutor (Alysia Reiner) and a challenge in her relationship with her junior partner (Sarah Megan Thomas). Deftly handled by Menon, Amy Fox’s script offers a pitiless vision of Wall Street, post-financial crisis, where no device is too devious between women bracing for the glass ceiling.

—Cara Cusumano
