From August 3 through 7, 2012.
With the epic dimensions of a Shakespearean tragedy, The Queen of Versailles follows billionaires Jackie and David’s rags-to-riches story to uncover the innate virtues and flaws of the American dream. It opens on the triumphant construction of the biggest house in America, a sprawling, 90,000-square-foot mansion in Orlando, Florida inspired by Versailles. Since a booming time-share business built on the real-estate bubble and cheap money is financing it, the economic crisis brings progress to a halt and seals the fate of its owners. We witness the impact of this turn of fortune over the next two years in a riveting film fraught with delusion, denial, and self-effacing humor.
Directed by lauded filmmaker and photographer Lauren Greenfield, who won the U.S. Directing Award for Documentary Film at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival for this film, The Queen of Versailles is a character-driven documentary about a billionaire family and their financial challenges in the wake of the economic crisis and the major changes in lifestyle and character ensue within the cross-cultural household of family members and domestic staff.
