It’s been a while since we’ve posted one of these! But this one is a “can’t miss.” The Queen of Versailles, IFFBoston 2012’s closing night film, is an excellent documentary from Lauren Greenfield. It follows David and Jackie Siegel as they are beginning to build what will eventually be the largest home in America. David Siegel, a timeshare mogul, came from humble beginnings, to eventually build his Westgate empire.
The bottom falls out from under them, and they find themselves suddenly struggling financially, and the future looking bleak. The film doesn’t poke fun, but shows you what sort of affect the economic recession had on this super wealthy family. You MUST watch this movie. Read the full review from IFFBoston 2012 here.
