South Solitary - Original music from the film, composed by Mary Finsterer

South Solitary is a gentle comic romance featuring Barry and Miranda Otto. The atmospheric, beautiful music by Mary Finsterer, composed as the film was being made, inspired actors and crew in the creation of this extraordinary piece of cinema.

Synopsis: The year is 1927. Meredith (Miranda Otto), an unmarried woman in her thirties, arrives on the remote lighthouse island South Solitary as an unpaid companion to her elderly uncle (Barry Otto), the new head light keeper. Bad weather, tragedy and misadventure leave Meredith marooned on the island with only the sullen and withdrawn Assistant Keeper Fleet (Marton Csokas), a returned soldier very much damaged by his war experience. A tender, faltering courtship ensues.

Written and directed by Shirley Barrett. Original music by Mary Finsterer.
