Details

A first-class Australian historical mini series featuring Essie Davis, Ernie Dingo, Max Cullen, Tom Long and based on the best-selling memoirs of Dame Mary Durack, Kings In Grass Castles is an epic drama tracing three generations of a pioneering family and their tumultuous settlement in colonial Australia. Fleeing the Irish Potato Famine of 1853, the Durack family search for a better life in a harsh land of infinite possibilities, rich with rewards ready for the taking. Led by patriarch Patsy Durack (AFI Award winner Stephen Dillane, John Adams), they set about developing the extraordinary Kimberley Region, establishing a dynamic network of sheep and cattle properties throughout the countryside. Throughout their pioneering endeavours, the Duracks forge lifelong friendships with the many local indigenous people, including Jimmy (Ernie Dingo, Bran Nue Dae) and the enigmatic Burrakin (David Ngoombujarra, Australia), discovering the severe hardship and tragedy of a people suddenly removed from their ancestral lands. These friendships would underscore the terrible historical irony of the dispossessed becoming the dispossessors. Also featuring James Fox (Sherlock Holmes), Fionnula Flanagan (Lost), and from the award-winning writer of Against The Wind and The Dirtwater Dynasty, Kings In Grass Castles is an epic story of family history set against the turbulence of national pride.
