Here is the synopsis for “The Queen of Versailles”:

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.

With epic proportions of Shakespearean tragedy, the film follows two unique characters whose rags-to-riches success stories reveal the innate virtues and flaws of the American dream. The film begins with the family triumphantly constructing the biggest house in America: a 90,000-square-foot palace.

Over the next two years, their sprawling empire – fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money – falters due to the economic crisis. Major changes in lifestyle and character ensue within the cross-cultural household of family members and staff.
