The Queen of Versailles

With epic proportions of Shakespearean tragedy, this highly entertaining documentary details the lives of American timeshare billionaires David and Jackie Siegel as construction begins on their new home - a lavish mansion inspired by the palace of Versailles and the biggest house in America at 90,000 sq. ft. Over the next two years, their sprawling empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis. Major changes in lifestyle and character ensue within the cross-cultural household of family members and domestic staff. Along the way, the director makes some cogent points about the American dream.
