“MASTERFUL. A wickedly funny allegory about the American dream, greed, and privilege, the film is packed with quotable one-liners and is entertaining and engrossing throughout.” – Liliana Greenfield-Sanders, The Huffington Post

 

OPENING NIGHT FILM AT THE 2012 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL

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.  2012 Sundance Film Festival Opening Night Film!

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.
