The Queen Of Versailles

4

Lauren Greenfield gives us a glimpse of her lavish lifestyle

Letting real-world twists lead her into increasingly fruitful turf, Lauren greenfield’s portrait of a monstrously wealthy us family grows from its gawp-doc foundations into a gem.

The filthy-rich siegels’ plan to build a $100m mansion - big enough to house patriarch David’s ego and matriarch Jackie’s boob jobs.

But when the recession bites, Queen becomes a riches-to-rags tragicomedy, as Jackie’s unexpected likeability puts a very human face on consumerism gone crackers.
