'Lighthouse Keeper'
25 February 2024 90s
The joy of driving
by Jason Stone

The car is modern, but the occupation isn't… there aren't actually any unmanned lighthouses in Australia any more, but let's not quibble because the premise is lovely. A man lives a peaceful existence maintaining the lighthouse where he appears fully reconciled to his solitude.

Director Steve Rogers ramps up the intrigue as the audience waits to discover why the lighthouse keeper regularly looks to the horizon. What is he waiting for? Supplies? Company? The arrival of another lighthouse keeper to relieve him?

It's none of these. He's actually waiting for an excuse... and that excuse is provided by a postal delivery. He jumps into his car to travel the very short distance to his mailbox, where he collects a handful of letters that have just been brought from the mainland and can finally listen to the tune that's given him a bad case of earworm.

It's a simple proposition leaning into the idea that driving the advertised vehicle is so much fun that any owner would jump at each opportunity.
