Picnic at Hanging Rock 
"Picnic At Hanging Rock" by Yojimbo
2.5/4 stars

On Valentine's day 1900, an Australian boarding school for girls organised a field trip to nearby Hanging Rock, but three of the girls and their governess failed to return. Peter Weir's atmospheric tale is based upon a true life mystery that to this day has never been solved; this gives plenty of scope for attractive imagery and period detail which sets the scene beautifully for an enigmatic and evocative story with a historical bent. However, because it is based upon reality and the script refuses to even speculate as to a possible culprit or the fate of the victims there is little meat to the mystery element. Very nice to look at certainly, and it does have a wonderfully otherworldly and ethereal quality but some may find this period "drama" rather lacking in the latter.
