South Solitary - Barry Otto, Marton Csokas, Miranda Otto, Shirley Barrett

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

The year is 1927, and the setting is South Solitary Island, off the coast of Tasmania - a remote lighthouse island which is cold, rainy, and directly in the path of the Roaring Forties. Meredith Appleton (Miranda Otto), 35, arrives with her uncle, George Wadsworth (Barry Otto), the replacement Head Keeper of the lighthouse. She is a "chin up!" sort of a girl, and she needs to be in these circumstances. Meredith tries to make the best of a bad situation by attempting to make friends with the few occupants of the island, including Assistant Keeper, Fleet (Marton Csokas). However, with a little bit of time, Meredith finds much more than friendship.

South Solitary is a gentle romantic drama about the gradual coming together of Meredith and Fleet, two unhappy characters left alone on this wind-swept lighthouse island.
