A hugely enjoyable and endearing Australian comedy from Director Rob Sitch (The Dish) about a working class tow truck driver Darryl Kerrigan and his family who are very happy living next to Melbourne airport. When plans for airport expansion threaten the family home, they decide to fight the authorities to keep their castle. Written by Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, Rob Sitch and Jane Kennedy (cult Australian TV comedies The D-Generation and Frontline), The Castle is a warm, affectionate and very funny story of suburban family life.

You may like to note that, complementing our Australian season, Eden Court Cinema is showing Mystery Road directed by Ivan Sen, from Fri 12 to 18 Sept. and David Michod's new film The Rover, starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson on Fri 5th Sept-Thurs 11th Sept. ECC is also showing 20,000 Days on Earth, a drama/ documentary followed by a live satellite event with Nick Cave on Thursday 17th Sept.
