Festival officials tell us there will be a red carpet event tonight for the screening of Queen of Versailles. Both Lauren Greenfield, the director, and Jackie Siegel, the subject of the documentary, will be in attendance.
The film chronicles what was supposed to be the construction of the largest house in America here in the Sunshine State. Orlando couple David and Jackie Siegel felt the brunt of the housing collapse instead and ended up with an unfinished estate. We imagine the crowd in Sarasota, a locale which was especially devastated by the housing collapse, will have some questions to ask.
The Magnolia Pictures film has been purchased by Bravo and will air in 2013. Media lines up for the carpet at 5:45pm with talent arriving at 6pm. The movie screens at 6:30pm at the Hollywood 20
