About the Movie
With the epic dimensions of a Shakespearean tragedy, "The Queen of Versailles" follows billionaires Jackie and David Siegel’s rags-to-riches story. We open on the triumphant construction of the biggest house in America - a sprawling, 90,000-square-foot mansion inspired by Versailles. But when the economic crisis brings progress to a halt and undermines their empire, their over-the-top lifestyle must change dramatically. “Masterful. A wickedly funny allegory for the American dream.” The Washington Post

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The paradox of wealth without refinement remains unexamined but emerges as a metaphor for the American Dream itself.
Fresh: Through a clear lens unclouded by politics or blame, it offers insight into the hazardous American practice of living beyond our means.
Fresh: There's more going on here than classist derision, and the filmmaker uses her footage to try to sort out her feelings.
Fresh: "The Queen of Versailles" ought to be required viewing for anyone who blames the rich for yanking the rug out from under America's economy.
