The Castle | 1999
Working-class tow-truck driver and father of four Darryl Kerrigan's only distinguishing feature is his beaming reverence for his home and family. To other parents, his kids might seem consumate underachievers. For other property owners, a fixer upper abutting a major international airport might appear little more than and eyesore. But not for Darryl, whose home is his castle and whose family is his pride and joy. So when government officials demand that the Kerrigans sell their house to make room for airport expansion, Darryl digs in his heels, sharpens his pens, and nudges his case all the way to the Supreme Court. And through his tenacity, a very unexceptional man popels himself to the ranks of the "little battlers" who have deigned to buck the system.
