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.

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.

This digitally remastered transfer was completed under the supervision of Peter Weir. The process included colour grading and digital restoration of the original film materials, while maintaining the authenticity of the 1975 feature.
