I wasn't sure I needed another Wall Street thriller this year, but Equity claims some worthy territory by making most of its lead characters female and acknowledging the difference that makes without actually making it about feminism. In fact, the women in this story struggle with getting ahead "the old-fashioned way", although much more on their own terms than past iterations might have allowed. This isn't a "women's story", but a non-gendered story that happens to women, and isn't written as if it had happened to men. An excellent performance by Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn tentpoles the enterprise (which was also written and directed by women), with Sarah Megan Thomas and Alysia Reiner providing superlative support. Equity isn't revolutionary - do ALL banks make use of a Jenga set? - but its point of view brings a freshness to the material.
