"The first 'spooky' movie I ever watched..."
4 stars"

I watched this movie at a friends 11th birthday party in the mid 80s. It was the first spooky type movie I ever watched. I actually thought it was true (although I know that sounds ridiculous, if you are familiar with the story) – but I did believe it to be a true event that took place in the Australian outback. It's ‘girly’ and sweetly portrayed, I enjoyed the girls being innocent – a pleasant change from today's movie youth portrayed as being aggressive and sexually ‘wise’. It's a G rated movie, PG rated because of the disappearance that takes place. Overall, it's refreshingly sweet :)

"Quite a good story but mellow."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I enjoyed the story but found the movie very mellow. Acting was abit so so but i suppose thats how it was suppose to be portaited in those times. A good mystery with no really hints. Did like the little twist about the brother and sister.

Description

St. Valentine’s Day, 1900. On a beautiful summer’s day a party of virginal Australian schoolgirls from an exclusive finishing school giddily prepare for an excursion to Hanging Rock, a magnificent natural monument drenched in a mysterious atmosphere.

Among the white-gloved pupils of Appleyard college are senior boarders Miranda, Marion, Irma and Edith.

The girls gain permission to explore the upper slopes of the rock. Edith takes a nap and wakes to discover that the other three girls have removed their shoes and stockings and have resumed their trek as if in a dream… disappearing into a passageway in the rock itself.

Edith returns to the picnic, panic stricken and alone. Mathematics mistress Miss McCraw goes to investigate, but neither she nor the three other girls are ever seen again. They have vanished without a trace.

What eerie events took place that day, and will those involved ever rid themselves of the demons that the ill fated picnic unearthed?

Based on the classic novel by Joan Lindsay, "Picnic at Hanging Rock", is both sublimely spooky and majestically beautiful.

Boasting visually hypnotic photography by Oscar winner Russell Boyd, a haunting score by Bruce Smeaton and the timeless ethereal beauty of Anne Louise Lambert as Miranda, this classic helped revive the Australian film industry and established Director Peter Weir as a major International talent.
