Storyline

Naomi Bishop is an investment banker determined to overcome a previous stain to her professional reputation, which is a challenge in the male dominated financial sector she works in. As Naomi in that spirit makes her move managing a burgeoning new tech IPO, she has to endure not only the condescension of her colleagues, but also her imperious client even as troubling new developments cloud the venture's future. Against that, the probing of a college friend turned Federal investment law prosecutor and the conniving of her double-dealing boyfriend seem to be manageable complications, until a betrayal by a trusted colleague threatens to ruin everything.

Plodding and dull
20 April 2019 | by transformation-49932See all my reviews

Casting of the women was wrong, the plot took forever to develop and the dialogue was waffly and cliched. Anna Gunn is an awful actress for this role, much better suited to suburban housewife roles than a slick, sleek professional woman. The assistant seems more like a bank teller than an aspiring master of the universe. Had the casting of the female roles been better and the script tighter, it could have been salvaged.
