Folie À Deux Review

Image for Folie À Deux

Helen Heraty, a single mum with seven kids, resolves to convert one of Britain's oldest country houses into a huge hotel. But as this documentary shows, it's a hairy journey.


Relocated the Queen Of Versailles to York, replace Vegas brash with British pluck and voilà, a compelling if occasionally rambling account of mother-of-seven Helen Heraty’s attempt to turn an historic house into a high-class hotel, while confounding her grumpy neighbours.

Interesting, occasionally ramshackle story of grand ambition and crisis.
