However, this home is only the second most important thing in Darryl Kerrigan's life - his true pride and joy is his loving family. Much like the Kerrigan castle, at first glance the Kerrigan family may appear somewhat rough around the edges.
The ever optimistic youngest son Dale Kerrigan (Stephen Curry) happily narrates the story of his family, even as their lives take a fateful turn when the expansion of the airport threatens their home. Incensed, Darryl Kerrigan defends his castle against the government's land rights policy.
"The Castle" is a heartwarming and hilarious tale of the power and importance of family and how everyone needs a place in the world that they can call home. While somewhat offbeat, the characters are not unlike people we all know - people who are merely looking to live their lives as best they can and enjoy to the fullest their small slice of the world. "The Castle" is a wonderful, fun film, complete with an unlikely hero willing to take on the world in order to protect his way of life and those he loves. Somewhere along the lines of "The Full Monty" or "Waking Ned Divine", this Australian import may just be the next sleeper hit that wins over an American audience.
