Two-time Emmy Award® winner Anna Gunn (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Breaking Bad, 2013 & 2014) stars as a sharp, experienced and resolute investment banker fighting to get a promotion at her competitive Wall Street firm in Equity, debuting on DVD 9th January 2017 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
While leading a controversial tech IPO in the post-financial-crisis world, Gunn finds that regulations are tight, but pressure to bring in big money remains high. The suspenseful, relevant, female-driven Wall Street drama was funded by women, directed by a woman, written by a woman, and starring women -- making it a true female collaboration. Equity also stars James Purefoy (The Following), Sarah Megan Thomas (Backwards) and Alysia Reiner (Orange is the New Black).
Bonus material on Equity include three featurettes. Meet the film's extraordinary group of women investors, luminaries in the world of Wall Street and true champions of this true-to-life story in Girl Gang: The Equity of Empowerment. In Grey Lines: The Making of Equity, the cast and filmmakers discuss bringing this story to screen and their mission to tell a complex and provocative story, while in Los Angeles Film Festival Q&A, Anna Gunn, Alysia Reiner, Sarah Megan Thomas, Samuel Roukin and director Meera Menon share a lively discussion on the film.
