The Castle is an Australian comedy film written and directed by Rob Sitch (who also wrote and directed ’The Dish’). A working-class family who adore each other and their eccentric home, are suddenly faced with the compulsory purchase of their home due to the planned expansion of a nearby airport.


With their typical optimism in the face of unbeatable odds, the irrepressible head of the family, Daryl - played by Michael Caton, sets out to fight the decision through the courts. While he tries to challenge the might of the corporate giants who want them gone, the family still manage to go to their holiday home in Bonnidoon and carry on investigating bargains in the Trading Post.
