The Estate A Must-See On Hulu (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, February 11, 2022

This week I talked with writer-actor Chris Baker about his new film “The Estate” a dark comedic thriller about real people doing despicable things. If you love movies like John Water’s “Serial Mom” this fabulous film delivers in the same guilty-pleasure vein. Written & starring Baker the film centers on the spoiled son & the newest wife (Eliza Coupe) of a billionaire patriarch (Eric Roberts) who plot to murder him forming a psychosexual bond with their brutally handsome hitman (Greg Finlay) as they kill in their quest for wealth & recognition. Baker tells us that growing up all he ever wanted to do was to make movies & while he was an avid consumer he noticed the lack of films that reflected our LGBTQ community. When his director & producer came to him asking what kind of film he wanted to do he remembered all the movies like “Cruel Intentions” & “Wild Things” & “Scream” & movies that had that balance of tone where things could be very funny but they could also kill people so Chris came back with the script for “The Estate”. The stellar cast also includes Heather Matarazzo, Rif Hutton, Alexander Billings, Kyle Rezzarday & Ezra Buzzington. The film is directed by James Kapner & produced by Rod Hamilton, Adam Makowka & Alixandra von Renner. It’s available on Hulu & most VOD streaming outlets. Baker a Harvard graduate is best known for “Baker Daily: Trump Takedown” (2017) & “The Office Is Mine” (2019) after collecting millions of views on YouTube as a pop singer. I talked to Chris about his inspiration for writing “The Estate” & his spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
