Jacquie Siegel married money. Twice. The second time, it was to David Siegel, who made his fortune by pioneering the sale of time-share vacation rentals. With their eight kids in tow, they decide they need a bigger house. In fact, they need the biggest house--a ninety-thousand-square-foot palace modeled on Louis XIV's digs--and they're going to build it in south Florida. Photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (Thin) takes us behind the scenes of a gilt-edged American Dream writ large and investigates just how much happiness money can buy.
"A succulently entertaining movie that invites you to splash around in the dreams and follies of folks so rich they're the 1 percent of the 1 percent. It's like a champagne bath laced with arsenic." (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)
