Picnic at Hanging Rock - Criterion Collection

Three students and a school teacher disappear on an excursion to Hanging Rock, in Victoria (Australia), on Valentine's Day, 1900. Widely (and incorrectly) regarded as being based on a true story, the movie follows those that disappeared, and those that stayed behind, but it delights in the asking of questions, not the answering of them. Situated somewhere between supernatural horror and lush Victorian melodrama, director Peter Weir's lyrical, enigmatic masterpiece is an imaginative tease. This hypnotic puzzle remains the highlight of the '70s Australian New Wave and is one of our favorite movies!!
