The Castle

1h 25m Comedy, Drama 1997

AroView: Uniquely Antipodean comedy about a blissfully naïve family that become forced to take on the council Goliath who wish to convert their beloved suburban dwelling into airport tarmac.

Will fetch a wry smile of recognition from most Kiwis as well as confound cynical expectations about being just another round of brash Aussie stereotypes - rather, rarely have screen characters of any creed or country had so much heart.

“A sweeping saga that takes the harsh Australian outback, the rugged characters of the ANZAC legend and the spirit of Banjo Patterson and ignores them in favour of a greyhound racing tow-truck driver who never meant to be a hero.” ~ Roadshow Entertainment.
