Listed as one of the Guardian’s top 10 films of 2012, this see-it-to-believe-it doco is a rags-to-riches story with the epic proportions of Versailles itself.  The Queen of Versailles follows Florida time-share real estate billionaire David Siegel and his wife – a former beauty queen with a penchant for plastic (surgery and cards) as they build their 90,000 square-foot home. The largest private residence in the US and based on the Palace of Versailles in France.  Filmed over several years, filmmaker Lauren Greenfield captures the effect of the GFC and its consequence on this mega-rich couple and lays bare the flaws in the American Dream.  And gives a satisfying depth to the word schadenfreude!
