Santo Cilauro (pictured right), co-writer of The Castle, will be another special guest at The Stickler event, which bills itself as The World’s Most Fastidious Film Forum.

Along with passionately pedantic movie buffs Mark Sutton and Zoe Norton Lodge, the group will discuss ‘The Real Vibe of the Castle’ and will seek to answer big questions, such as:

  • Would Darryl Kerrigan really have won in the High Court, or was Santo dreaming?
  • Is bumbling suburban solicitor Dennis Denuto (pictured below) based on someone in Santo’s family?
  • Is The Castle the best-ever film about section 51(xxxi) of the Australian Constitution?

Folklaw thinks the last question may be particularly appropriate given the 1 April article reporting that The Castle took first place in a College of Law survey asking Australian legal practitioners to vote for their top 40 legal films of the past 40 years.

The Stickler forum, accompanied by iconic footage from The Castle, takes place at 7.30pm this Thursday (8 May) in Redfern, Sydney.
