‘A legacy of greed’
Two Deaths of Henry Baker is a 2020 American thriller about a family feud and a bloody battle for possession of a fortune in gold.

The movie stars Gil Bellows, Tony Curran, Joe Dinico, Sebastian Pigott, Dani Kind and Jess Salgueiro.
When infamous outlaw Henry Baker (Gil Bellows) is released from prison after twenty-five years, old friends and enemies are waiting for him. The son he left behind, entrusted to watch over his ill-gotten riches. A bearded vagrant with a pistol and a decades-old bullet scar in his stomach. An alcohol-soaked deputy with half an ear on one side. And a burnt-out street hustler with a sick mother and a festering vendetta. The combined misfits track Henry to a dilapidated hotel where he plans to reunite with his son and the secret bag of gold he left behind…
“The no-man-standing conclusion has the whiff of dramatic nihilism, and it’s nowhere as perversely operatic as you might hope it would be. Still, the film projects both a strong intelligence and lots of ambition, two attributes to be heartily applauded. Most of the cast acquit themselves nicely…” The Austin Chronicle
Two Deaths of Henry Baker premiered at the 2020 Austin Film Festival.
In the USA, Saban Films will release Two Deaths of Henry Baker on DVD and On-Demand on January 25th, 2022.
