The Castle, on DVD
In the Australian comedy The Castle, Darryl Kerrigan is a man in love with his home, his castle, and he has added many “extensions” to his no-so-humble abode, adding originality and charm. The backyard of his home just happens to be an airport runway. He lives in his house with his close-knit and quirky family, including his crafty, cooking wife, and one of his three grown children. After being faced with a government enforced eviction so that the airport can expand, happy-go-lucky Darryl and his neighbors put up a fight and head to high court, sighting Australian constitution as their defense. Narrated by one of the Kerrigan teenagers, this off-beat film will have you in stitches.
