“Never has grotesque wealth looked so unenviable, or its removal been so entertaining, as in this garishly watchable riches-to-rags documentary.”~Guardian

Aroview: A billionaire couple who've made their fortune in time-share real estate experience the harsh reality of the economic crisis in the midst of constructing the single largest private home in America, in this eye-opening documentary.

An amazing fly-on-the-wall account of personal hubris with a fateful second act that rescues it from being just another slice of kitsch voyeurism, and proves much more fortuitous for the film-maker than the subjects. Though there is glee to be had in observing these tasteless people being thrown to the proverbial lions, trophy-wife Jackie Siegel reveals herself as an endearing and sympathetic soul beneath those ridiculous artificial breasts.
