Picnic at Hanging Rock

Picnic at Hanging Rock
[DVD Picnic]

I first saw this film nearly 20 years ago and was impressed by its moodiness as well as the intriguing story. The setting is Valentine's Day at a private girls' school in Australia, 1900. The girls prepare to go for an outing at a remote location known as "Hanging Rock." Several girls and a teacher mysteriously disappear during the excursion. Is it an alien abduction or a kidnapping? This is a wonderful film to watch if you like unexplained mysteries. -- recommended by Kim J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
