The Cas­tle

Nine, 9.30pm, M ( 1997)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

Di­rec­tor Rob Sitch’s de­light­fully Aus­tralian ver­sion of The Peo­ple Vs. Larry Flynt sees Dar­ryl Ker­ri­gan ( Michael Ca­ton) and his bluecol­lar fold take on “ the sys­tem” when his “ cas­tle” ( col­lo­quial for home) is threat­ened by progress. He’ll need the help of a re­tired con­sti­tu­tional lawyer ( played by the late, great Charles “ Bud” Ting­well) if he’s to have any luck in bring­ing down the big boys. Ex­pos­ing the idio­syn­cratic Aussie bat­tler im­age, this won­der­ful, di­a­logue-rich gem can leave the pop­u­la­tion to rest as­sured know­ing that fam­i­lies like the Ker­ri­g­ans ex­ist. A de­light­ful sur­prise, that stars Stephen Curry, Anne Ten­ney and Eric Bana.
