The Queen of Versailles

Lauren Greenfield Spotlight – “The Queen of Versailles” from Joe LaMattina on Vimeo.

In case you’re on the fence about it, I recently saw The Queen of Versailles and thoroughly enjoyed the documentary. Your first reflex may be to pigeonhole Jacqueline Siegel as a trophy wife, but you then discover she’s actually a very intelligent and unpretentious woman (who likes to spend a lot). Some documentaries try to elicit moral disgust from the audience; this film is a success in part because it isn’t that kind of documentary.

While I streamed the movie from Amazon, it’s also available for $3.99 streaming on YouTube.

    My dad also highly recommended this documentary. I’ll have to add it to my queue! 🙂

      Scott, ftw!

      I think there should be a high school class that just shows documentaries about people who lose their life’s savings. It would also include the movie “Confessions of a Shopoholic,” what?!
