About

Set in the last decade of the 19th century, PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK sees mysterious widow Hester Appleyard (Dormer) arrive in Australia, where she establishes Appleyard College, a successful school for young ladies that she presides over with an iron fist, lauding order, precision, and perfection. On Valentine’s Day, 1900, the enigmatic headmistress allows her pupils to picnic at Hanging Rock – a former volcano that has eroded into an unusual rock formation. There, in the strange brooding landscape, three of Appleyard’s star students and a governess disappear. With a far-reaching impact on students and staff at the school and the nearby township, suspicions about the disappearance begin to flourish and paranoia sets in. Long-held secrets surface and the mystery deepens.
