The Castle

Working-class tow-truck driver and father of four Darryl Kerrigan's (Michael Caton) only distinguishing feature is his beaming reverence for his home and family. Although is kids appear to be underachievers and his home is located on the edge of a major international airport, his family is his pride and joy and his home is his castle. So when goverment officials demand that Kerrigan sell his house for an expansion of the airport, he fights back through the legal system- all the way up to the Supreme Court. A wonderful Aussie original.
