A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles. During the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis.
The original song "Wide Awake," was between the 75 songs eligible for an Oscar in a list released on Dec. 11, 2012 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Other potential nominees that could collect an Oscar on Feb. 24, 2013 are Adele's "Skyfall" from Skyfall and Florence and the Machine's "Breath of Life" from Snow White and the Huntsman. See more »
In one scene, Katy Perry is seen receiving an award at the 2011 American Music Awards before the film cuts to a backstage scene of Lady Gaga supposedly congratulating her, despite the fact that the latter artist did not attend that awards show. (The backstage scene actually takes place at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards.) See more »
There are some very miserable spiteful reviews on here. They usually contain such revelations as 'I don't like Katy Perry's music and hated this movie'. Er... what are you doing watching a film about Katy Perry if you don't like Katy Perry's music. I know, you came to be bored and to dislike it and you succeeded. The film contains a very revealing and surprising story about a genuinely gifted songwriter breaking out of her strict religious upbringing and rising to the very highest peak that anybody could possibly wish for. She did it through shear determination and spirit. She did not get it handed to her. She was in fact jerked around by all the record companies and almost sunk until, in one memorable quote, one of the young female execs stole her music from the company and 'snuck out' with it, so that she would be free to find success at another label which had people of some imagination and vision instead of the lame egotistical dicks that she was tied to at that time. Her message is absolutely positive, absolutely empowering and liberating for young girls, and the concert footage shows just how transcendent that message becomes for them at the live shows. She is not sleazy or nasty or stupid. If I had a daughter I would strongly approve of her being a 'Katy cat'. I enjoyed every minute of this documentary. Those who hated it are most likely sad old men or jealous bitches. I reckon.
