Equity

By on December 21, 2016

This drama is neither subtle nor perfect, but there’s much that recommends it, starting with Gunn’s electrifying performance. The Breaking Bad actress blends a potent mix of edge, assertiveness, and fear. And, really, the whole ensemble is great, if not all quite as charismatic as Gunn. The story itself is fascinating, too.
But Equity’s Achilles heel is how it stays fairly close to the surface; though we glimpse the reasons and motivations behind each character’s decisions (good or bad), we don’t get very deep. And what appears revealing feels painted with a not-so-fine brush, with nuance shunted aside for expediency in storytelling. A little more subtlety and character exploration could have elevated the film to a memorable finish. Ages 15+ Out Jan. 11, 2017
