It’s beginning to seem a lot like Christmas, so don’t fight it, feel it with our 2021 festive movie Advent calendar.
The Castle (1997)
Stars: Michael Caton, Anne Tenney
Australia has come up with a lot of bonza movies, but we don’t really do the Christmas variety. So, we’re going to repurpose The Castle as a festive time classic. After all, think of how many dads are going to earnestly declare, “This goes straight to the pool room” come Chrissie morning? As for its relevant credentials, on top of featuring big guys and little guys (Father Christmas and elves? Yeah, we’re stretching), more importantly The Castle is ultimately a story about family, and the togetherness thereof. Now what could be more bloody Christmassy than that?!
