The Queen of Versailles
October 4, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES is a character-driven documentary about a billionaire family and their financial challenges in the wake of the economic crisis.
Rated 95% fresh by critics on Rotten Tomatoes and a critics pick in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times.
“MASTERFUL. A WICKEDLY FUNNY ALLEGORY ABOUT THE AMERICAN DREAM.” (Liliana Greenfield-Sanders, The Huffington Post)
“A SPRAWLING, RICHLY DETAILED STUDY OF AMBITION, DESIRE AND THE WILD SWINGS OF FORTUNE. A gaudy guilty pleasure that is also a piece of trenchant social criticism. If this film is a portrait, it is also a mirror.” – A.O. Scott, NY Times
“JAW-DROPPING. EYE-OPENING. A FILMMAKING COUP. It combines the soul-revealing artistry of great portraiture and the head-shaking revelations of solid investigative reporting.” – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
“BEAUTIFULLY CONSTRUCTED AND FREQUENTLY UPROARIOUS.” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
