The movie screens Thurs. Oct. 4, but tickets must be purchased in advance online (and are expected to sell out).


THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES is an immensely entertaining documentary about a billionaire family and their financial challenges in the wake of the economic crisis.


 Rated 95% fresh by critics on Rotten Tomatoes and a critics pick in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times.


 "MASTERFUL. A WICKEDLY FUNNY ALLEGORY ABOUT THE AMERICAN DREAM." (Liliana Greenfield-Sanders, The Huffington Post)


 “A SPRAWLING, RICHLY DETAILED STUDY OF AMBITION, DESIRE AND THE WILD SWINGS OF FORTUNE. A gaudy guilty pleasure that is also a piece of trenchant social criticism. If this film is a portrait, it is also a mirror.” – A.O. Scott, NY Times


 “JAW-DROPPING. EYE-OPENING. A FILMMAKING COUP. It combines the soul-revealing artistry of great portraiture and the head-shaking revelations of solid investigative reporting.” – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer


 "BEAUTIFULLY CONSTRUCTED AND FREQUENTLY UPROARIOUS." – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune


 An after-film discussion will be led by Joshua Peck for those who wish to stay. Joshua is a film critic and programmer for an historical art theatre in Tulsa, Oklahoma, who currently runs a free film series at the Palos Verdes Library, showing foreign and independent films (on dvd) followed by a discussion.
