When I started The Last New Wave, I asked friends on Facebook what their favourite Australian film was. The one title that continued to pop up (alongside other films like Chopper, Blessed and Lantana) was Rob Sitch’s The Castle. So, finally, we’ve dedicated an episode to covering this comedy ‘classic’.
It was only fair then to bring on David from Pop Culture Case Study to discuss the film, as well as Bernadette who routinely co-hosts the show as well. We discuss the film at length, touching on the cultural identity of it, as well as the effectiveness of the comedy overseas.
