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
