Queen of Versailles
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 story reveals the innate virtues and flaws of the American Dream.
Hilarious, infuriating, timely and involving. Regards its all-too-vilifiable subjects with a complexity that should impress viewers of all economic and political persuasions.—Variety
