Rate this:
A character-driven documentary about a billionaire family and their financial challenges in the wake of the economic crisis. With the epic proportions of a Shakespearean tragedy, the film follows two unique characters, whose rags-to-riches success stories reveal the innate virtues and flaws of the American Dream.. The film begins with the family triumphantly constructing the largest privately owned house in America, a 90,000 sq. ft. palace. 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. . Winner of a Directing Award and the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival.. "THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES is funny, sad, infuriating, instructive. It's the American Dream inflated to ridiculous extremes, until it bursts." - Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
