Alysia Reiner and Sarah Megan Thomas in Equity

“Equity” takes the financial thriller and gives it a new twist by casting women in the leads, as an investment banker (Anna Gunn) works her way up the Wall Street ladder as a prosecutor (Alysia Reiner) keeps a watchful eye.

By casting women in the traditionally male roles, Reiner says, the movie sends a message. “You can do anything,” she says. “I think that’s the number one. You can do anything. And don’t be afraid to try.”

Adds costar Sarah Megan Thomas: “I have a little boy and I want the same message for him for women. Part of doing this film is for him to see strong women can do anything.”
