The Queen of Versailles
The Polk Theatre presents the film The Queen of Versailles
Starring: Virginia Nebab, Bob Siegel, and Jacqueline Siegel
Directed by Lauren Greenfield
Run time: 1 hour 40 minutes
In 2008, the Siegel family was top of the heap with the wealthy and politically influential David Siegel running the successful Westgate Resorts time-share business. To enjoy their good life, he and his engineer turned beauty queen trophy wife, Jackie, were building the largest single family private home in America. Suddenly, both the US economy and Westgate were rocked by the devastating sub-prime mortgage collapse. In the new economic reality with the business teetering on ruin, we follow the Siegels as they struggle to scale down their grotesquely ostentatious lifestyle. For this over-privileged family, accepting that situation proved a dispiriting struggle even as their unfinished dream home became a monument of their superficial values.
