The Estate is an overacted, wannabe The Wolf of Wall Street. Read more in our review below:
It is directed by James Kapner and written by and stars Chris Baker, as well as Eliza Coupe, Greg Finley, and Eric Roberts. The film is the debut for Baker and you feel that. While the screenplay is painfully average, you especially feel it during the amateurishly overacted scenes. Not just by Baker, but the rest of the cast as well. It also doesn’t help that the characters are simply unlikeable, which further distances the viewer from the drama at hand.

The Estate’s story stays predictable throughout the entire film. The only thing making it kind of interesting is the fact that it said to be based on a true story, but it isn’t an adaptation, so it’s a bit unclear how much of the film really happened.
The Estate is a boring, uninspired film that offers nothing interesting.
