Picnic at Hanging Rock

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.

Valentine's Greeting Cards

"Meet me, love, when day is ending."

"I love thee for thy highborn grace,
Thy deep and lustrous eyes,
For the sweet meaning of thy brow
And for thy bearing so high."

Six, and seven, and eight, and nine, and ten, and eleven...

"I love thee not because thou art fair,
Softer than down, smoother than air,
Nor for the cupids that do lie
In either corner of thine eye.
Wouldst thou then know what it might be?
Tis I love thee 'cause thou lovest me."

My Rating of this Movie: 10/10 [thanks for beautiful ladies and great Australian nature]

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.
