Adrien Brody’s Documentary

March 15, 2015

The suggestion in the SXSW synopsis that Adrien bought The Stone Barn Castle in a “delapidated” and “partially burnt out” condition is highly misleading, insulting to the work that was done there before he acquired it, and shows contempt for its rich history within the local community. Just for the record: The Stone Barn Castle burned to nothing but stone walls in 1946. My parents, Dr and Mrs Hugel, bought the structure in 1969. They rebuilt it entirely, except for one roof, which was intentionally left open to reveal the towering stone walls, the interior of this portion designed as an inner courtyard, something I am quite sure Mr Brody has not changed. I can only hope that the publicity for this documentary is not an accurate description of the movie itself, and that in it Mr Brody expresses respect for the hard work, creativity, and openness to the community that preceded him. For a pre-Hollywood history of The Stone Barn Castle have a look at the previous post below, and for pictures of the reconstruction please see the photo gallery.

    I LIVE RIGHT DOWN THE ROAD FROM THE STONE BARN I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY OF THE RENOVATIONS THAT MR. BRODY HAS HAD DONE I WILL TELL YOU THIS BUILDING WAS BEAUTIFUL BEFORE HE BOUGHT IT! ANYONE COULD TELL THAT A LOT OF THOUGHT AND LOVE WENT INTO ITS DESIGN. IT’S AMAZING! MY CHILDREN AND I ENJOYED MANY ACTIVITIES THERE. I WISH WE STILL COULD VISIT IT. I HAVE HEARD THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE THAT MR. BRODY WANTED TO CONSTRUCT CERTAIN THINGS THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIVE. CLEAN IT UP, MAKE IT COMFORTABLE BUT REMEMBER IT’S A CASTLE NOT A HOLLYWOOD HOME!
