While Amy started out writing for theater productions, she crossed over to Hollywood with her first film Heights in 2005. Over the years, she’s worked with Alysia Reiner & Sarah Megan Thomas, the dedicated producers and stars of Equity.
Amy talks about where the idea for a film all about women in the financial industry came from, what the team wanted to bring to the big screen, and how they researched the storyline. Amy also shares the feedback she’s gotten from men and women about the sexism portrayed in the film, as well as the challenges she and other women in Hollywood face when producing their work.
The movie is a well-researched and fascinating look into Wall Street from a different perspective than we’ve ever seen before — and you can likely still catch it in theaters!
