Amazon has released the first trailer for their limited series PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK. The series is based on Joan Lindsay’s novel of the same name and was previously made into a movie in 1975 by Peter Weir.
Picnic at Hanging Rock follows the mysterious disappearance of three girls and their governess from the Appleyard Ladies College in the 1900’s. The six-episode limited series follows the subsequent investigation and the event’s far-reaching impact on the students and staff of the college.
I’m always excited for a good classic mystery, which feels as though it’s in the vein of Sophia Coppola’s Beguiled. I’ve also grown to be a huge admirer of Natalie Dormer’s period pieces. Just from the trailer, I can tell I’ll be bingeing this as soon as possible.
Natalie Dormer stars as the enigmatic headmistress of Appleyard College. All six episodes of the limited series will premiere on Amazon Friday, May 25, check out the trailer below.
