The Queen of Versailles Trailer, Photos. Lauren Greenfield‘s The Queen of Versailles (2012) movie trailer, movie photos stars Jackie Siegel and David Siegel. The Queen of Versailles‘ plot synopsis: “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.
We open on the triumphant construction of the biggest house in America, a sprawling, 90,000-square-foot mansion inspired by Versailles. Since a booming time-share business built on the real-estate bubble 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.”

This documentary looks highly entertaining.
More on the Siegels and The Queen of Versailles:
their idea of roughing it still looks like most people’s idea of living in luxury. But Greenfield’s doc seems to find a perfect balance between gawking at the obscene decadence and genuinely feeling for their troubles…While The Queen of Versailles definitely has a Real Housewives-y element of guilty pleasure to it, it’s clear that Greenfield digs a little deeper to portray Jackie and David as real people rather than vilified caricatures of the 1%.
