The TV reimagining of Joan Lindsay's iconic and timeless Picnic at Hanging Rock tells the haunting story of the mysterious disappearance of three schoolgirls and their governess in 1900s Australia and features a mesmerising performance from Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer. Originally screened on BBC Two, it will be available on DVD from 20th August and we have 20 copies to win thanks to Acorn Media International.
On Valentine’s Day, a group of schoolgirls from Appleyard College take a day trip to dark and brooding Hanging Rock. When three girls and their governess go missing during the picnic, the event rocks not just the school, but the whole town. Theories abound, dangerous secrets are exposed and hysteria sets in, until eventually, the lives of all involved unravel.
With its mysteriously vast narrative, as enthralling as a true crime saga, this gothic tinged six-part drama taps into our fear of the unknown and explores issues of repression, sexuality, freedom and suffocating respectability. It shows the impact of the spreading stain of an unsolved mystery and the immense burden of unanswered questions.
