My third Peter Weir film and his best so far. I've rated all three films, The Truman Show, Dead Poets Society and Picnic at Hanging Rock more than 9.0 stars and this one is the highest rated, so far.

There's cinema, then there's beautiful cinema and then there's Picnic at Hanging Rock, a movie so tantalizing, so ethereal, so sublime, that you may scream out IMPOSSIBLE because no-othe... read more

Movies That Suck (14 movies items)

"Maybe this one doesn't deserve being on here. My opinion of the film probably suffers from the fact that I was expecting a horror film, and what I got was a long series of scenes featuring young girls flitting about the woods in white, with very little happening in between. 5/10 "

"August 13 "A surprising number of human beings are without purpose, though it is probable that they are performing some function unknown to themselves." I have seen four movies from Peter Weir and I have yet to see a movie from him that didn't amaze me. This is probably the most visually stunning movie I have ever seen. I'd say it's even worth seeing just for the cinematography. The story and dialogue was also great too. This movie goes for drama, horror and mystery and it's all done so well"

"1/8 Peter Weir's adaptation of a novel of the same name is a downright eerie but hauntingly beautiful film, in which a group of schoolgirls go for a picnic at a rock formation in 1900 in Australia. Three of the girls, along with their teacher, disappear and never return. We see them vanish ourselves, walking behind one of the tallest rocks of Hanging Rock while an eerie wooing can be heard. It's very unnerving. Then the rest of the community reacts. The other students end up in a depressed, ca"

The year is 1900 and in the town of Woodland, down in Victoria, Australia, a group of hoity-toity young lasses from an all-girls private college set out on a picnic as a sort of field trip.
