A penetrating reimagining of the iconic and timeless Australian novel, Picnic at Hanging Rock depicts the mysterious disappearances of three schoolgirls and their governess on Valentine’s Day, 1900. The complex, interwoven narrative charts the subsequent investigation and the event’s far-reaching impact on the students, families, and staff of Appleyard College and on the nearby township. Theories abound, long-held secrets are exposed, and paranoia and hysteria set in, as in vastly differing ways their lives are changed forever.
Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games films) is “spectacularly mesmerizing” (The Boston Globe) as the school’s enigmatic headmistress, alongside an excellent cast that features Don Hany (East West 101), Samara Weaving (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Anna McGahan (The Doctor Blake Mysteries), and Yael Stone (Orange Is the New Black).
