The castle is about a guy who tells the story of his family. They live next to an airport, and they get a notice from them saying they have to move out as the airport is going to extend over their street. So the father of the family goes to court, and loses, as he didn't have a very good lawyer. So he gets a really good, retired lawyer, and he wins. They get to keep their house.

I found this movie sortta boring - there was nothing really special about it.
