11. The Queen of Versailles
Site rank 1, IMDb rank 3; Overall Score = 4
Directed by Lauren Greenfield
Modeled after the famous French royal palace, the Versailles House is an attempt to introduce some French class and panache to Florida by David and Jackie Siegel. The film follows their struggle as, during the construction of their dream mansion, the Great Recession of 2008 hits and David’s company goes under. The family and their home have become American shorthand for the excess of the real estate bubble.
