The Castle? http://us.imdb.com/Title?0118826

A Melbourne family is very happy living where they do, near
the Melbourne airport (according to Jane Kennedy,
it's
"practically their back yard"). However, they are
forced to
leave their beloved home, by the Government and
airport
authorities. 'The Castle' is the story of how
they fight to remain
in their house, taking their case as far as the
High Court.
