The Castle - the unlikely last stop in the brilliant career of three star General Irwin (Robert Redford). Court-marshalled and stripped of his rank, Irwin has been sentenced to the maximum security military prison, which is run with an iron fist by its warden, Colonel Winter (James Gandolfini). Winter can't help but respect the once-legendary general, but it isn't long before that respect turns to resentment and then open hostility as Irwin continually confronts the warden on his methods. Setting out to break Irwin by whatever means necessary, the colonel's tactics only fuel Irwin's defiance and galvanize the other prisoners to rally behind the general in his new mission: to seize control of the prison and remove Winter from his command. The men imprisoned in The Castle have been told that they are no longer soldiers...but they are about to prove that they can still fight a war!
THE LAST CASTLE an action drama is directed by Rod Lurie, who wrote and directed last year's critically acclaimed political thriller THE CONTENDER. The film is produced by Robert Lawrence from an original screenplay by David Scarpa and Graham Yost from a story by David Scarpa. Don Zepfel is the executive producer. The score is by Oscar®-winning and 18-time Oscar®-nominated composer Jerry Goldsmith (L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, THE OMEN).
