The Queen of Versailles, a 2012 documentary by American filmmaker Lauren Greenfield about a billionaire couple who built a mansion that is inspired by Versailles.
The film follows the duo as they begin the construction of their dream home using money from the real estate bubble. Their inspiration is the Palace of Versailles, an extremely elaborate royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. Of course, building anything even remotely as glamorous as the Palace of Versailles is going to be monstrously expensive and unfortunately for the Siegels, the 2008 economic crash happened just as their project was in full swing.
Will they ever complete their project or will it simply become a monument of their superficial values? Watch "The Queen of Versailles" to find out. If you are interested in other documentaries about extreme home construction projects try out "Millionaire Basement Wars".
