F. Scott Fitzgerald famously wrote that "the rich are very different from you and me." Director Lauren Greenfield, in her fascinating documentary "The Queen of Versailles," tries to argue that the rich aren't that different even if her subjects sometimes demonstrate how different they really are.
Greenfield trains her artful eye on David and Jackie Siegel. David Siegel is CEO of Westgate Resorts, a massive timeshare firm that runs locations all over the country (including one in Park City). Jackie is David's 30-years-younger "trophy wife." (Someone in the film uses this term, so Mr. Siegel's quite busy lawyers who filed a lawsuit against Greenfield and her producers before the movie debuted at the Sundance Film Festival can save their breath on me.)
As the movie begins, the Siegels are enjoying the lavish amenities that Westgate's profits have earned them. David Siegel is just opening what he hopes will be the crown jewel of his business, a huge time-share resort in Las Vegas. And they are in the process of building the largest house in America, a 90,000-square-foot mansion modeled after Versailles.
