This sensual and striking chronicle of a disappearance put director Peter Weir on the map. Based on an acclaimed 1967 novel by Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock is set at the turn of the twentieth century and concerns a small group of students from an all-female college who vanish, along with a chaperone, while on a St. Valentine's Day outing. Less a mystery than a journey into the mystic, Weir's gorgeous, disquieting film is a work of poetic horror whose secrets haunt viewers to this day.
