Under the Lighthouse Dancing is a 1997 Australian romantic drama film directed by Graeme Rattigan, based on a true story.


Three couples travel to Rottnest Island near Perth, Western Australia for the weekend. One of the couples announces that they intend to get married and when the bride-to-be tells the others that she is terminally ill, they make sure the wedding takes place that weekend.



Writing for Variety, David Stratton praised the acting and production design of the film, but said that it had thin material, and that the ending was "hokey".[1]

Australia's SBS gave the film a negative review concluding that the production "obviously wants to have an emotional impact, it just hasn`t done it very successfully."[2]

Box Office[edit]

Under the Lighthouse Dancing grossed $30,321 at the box office in Australia.[3]
