Adrianne & the Castle
ADRIANNE IN THE CASTLE is a fairy-tale documentary exploring grief and the creative
power of love, through the astonishing story of Alan and Adrianne St-George and their hand- built castle in rural Illinois.
Alan and Adrianne St-George lived by the credo “Reality is for those who lack imagination” fuelling them to build a 62-room mansion in rural Illinois by hand, each room dedicated to their love. Alan executed Adrianne's elaborate designs; campy and ornate, each room contains hand-made sculptures, faux finishes and paintings depicting the couple. It was a monumental creative endeavour. “If architecture is frozen music,” said Alan, “in our house it’s like frozen opera.”
