Synopsis – What to Expect from “The Associate”
The Associate is a 1996 comedy film directed by Donald Petrie and starring Whoopi Goldberg and Dianne Wiest. The film follows the story of Laurel Ayres, a Harvard-educated investment banker who is denied a promotion because of her gender.
Determined to prove her worth in a male-dominated industry, Laurel creates an imaginary male partner, Robert Cutty, to help her close a deal. She is successful, and Cutty’s success leads to Laurel’s promotion. However, her success is short-lived, as her boss soon discovers that Cutty is a fabrication.
Laurel is fired, but she is determined to make the deal happen and prove her worth. She uses her knowledge of the investment world to create a plan to buy a failing company, turn it around, and sell it for a profit. With the help of her friend, Philip, and her former boss, she is able to acquire the company and make a successful turnaround.
In the end, Laurel proves that she is capable of succeeding in the investment world and earns the respect of her peers. She is able to secure a promotion and a partnership in the company. The Associate is a story of perseverance and determination and a testament to the power of female ambition.
