Picnic at Hanging Rock
“Not far from Melbourne is a nature preserve whose showpiece—a columnar remnant of an ancient volcano—inspired a 1967 novel about four visiting schoolgirls who break off from their group to climb the big rock, and disappear. Director Peter Weir’s sultry, atmospheric adaptation was one of the first Australian films to earn international acclaim—and in so doing shaped worldwide perceptions of Down Under. If the Sydney Opera House has come to represent the hip, welcoming dynamism of urban Australia, Picnic suggests that the wilderness is somehow both placid and teeming with unresolved tension—a mystery that it would be presumptuous to try to pin down.” – Sarah Kerr, Conde Nast
