Indie Trailer Sunday: Sundance Documentary 'The Queen of Versailles'
"Nothing's really normal about this life." Today's worth watching indie trailer is for a documentary that premiered at Sundance this year, to a bit of controversy. It's a doc called The Queen of Versailles, about a billionaires US family who tries to build the biggest house in the entire country. Part of the way through filming, the economic recession hit, they lost a lot of money, so construction stopped. The doc is more about their rise and fall, in a sense, and the lady (the "Queen") in it got a bit nervous about what it showed. It's now being released by Magnolia in theaters this summer, and looks like an intriguing social exposé. Enjoy!
Here's the official trailer for Lauren Greenfield's The Queen of Versailles, in high def from Apple:
A documentary that follows a billionaire couple who live in a 90,000-square-foot mansion inspired by Versailles, built on the success of the time-share industry.

The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it won the Best Directing Award.
