Ah, The Castle. It’s one of those Aussie films that makes you proud to call this little island home.
The Castle followed father-of-four, Darryl Kerrigan, (Michael Caton), as he fought off the compulsory acquisition of his home.
The film filled us with memorable quotes such as “straight to the pool room,” and “tell him he’s dreamin’.”
The Castle recently celebrated its 20 year anniversary. In order to commemorate that milestone, we thought we’d assemble a few true blue facts about the film.
FACT ONE: Made in five weeks.
The Castle was written, shot and edited in only five weeks. According to co-writer Santo Cilauro, the film was written in two weeks, shot in twelve days and edited in five.
