PELHAM, N.Y. -- Talk about girl power.

The Picture House Regional Film Center (TPH) will present an advance screening of the new film "Equity," promoted as “the first female-driven Wall Street movie."

The event, on Wednesday, July 27, will feature a post-film discussion and Q&A with Director Meera Menon and Picture House Critic-in-Residence, Marshall Fine.

The movie tells the story of an investment banker (Anna Gunn from "Breaking Bad") who is trying to work her way up the Wall Street ladder while a prosecutor (Alysia Reiner, from "Orange is the New Black") keeps an eye out for corrupt practices.

In addition to a mostly female cast and woman director, the film is also written and produced by women.

The movie premiered to critical acclaim at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, and opens nationwide on Friday, July 29.

Tickets to the special advance screening and discussion are $15/general admission, $12/students and seniors and members and are available at www.thepicturehouse.org/ or at the box office, 175 Wolfs Lane.
