Top Critic

It's a dull and lifeless movie that doesn't have a place in the landscape of Australian cinema of 2010.

Onya Magazine

a moody period piece whose titular location is all at once tangibly real and evocatively figurative.

Eye for Film

It is a beautiful thing to watch, even if the pacing feels a bit lopsided.

The Mercury

South Solitary is perfect for those who prize art for its own sake and a perfect example of why the rest of Australia is afraid of Australian films.

It was Shirley Barrett who discovered Miranda Otto's gift for screen comedy and it is Barrett who is responsible for its re-emergence. It's been in hiding for a long time.

Audience Reviews for South Solitary

Not at all the type of movie I would normally choose, but I loved "Love Serenade", and I was interested to see this one by the same director, and also starring Miranda Otto.
This is set in the 1920's and follows the story of a single woman in her 30's who goes to stay with her uncle on an isolated island after a small scandal back at home. It is quite a slow movie, and it takes time to build the characters. As usual, I was really impressed with Miranda, she really seems to do well with socially awkward and unusual characters.
I don't think this would be for everyone. It is, as I mentioned, a slow film, and at almost 2 hours, it could probably really wear out its welcome with those that need excitement from their viewing. But those that can have some patience and like characters with depth may find this rewarding.
