Ordinary family... Extraordinary story

Plot Summary

A light-hearted Australian comedy, The Castle is the story of the Kerrigan family, who live happily in their DIY home right next door to an airport until they receive a 'kick-out notice' because the airport wants to expand. Believing 'a man's home is his castle', Darryl Kerrigan vows to fight the order.

Winner of the 'Best Original Screenplay' (AFI Awards) and 'Australian Movie of the Year' (Australian Movie Convention), The Castle is a gently satirical film which will delight students with its Australian humour.
