Reign of the “The Queen of Versailles”

There’s a new documentary out that’s worth watching – “The Queen of Versailles.”  It’s available on Netflix.  The movie’s about Jackie and David Siegel, owners of Westgate Resorts, and their family’s fall from wealth during the recession.  At the beginning of the movie, they’re planning to build the largest home in the U.S. and are surrounded by enormous wealth.  At the end of the movie the half-built home rots, the company evaporates and the staff is mostly gone.  It’s fascinating to see how the other 0.001% lived.
