Pic­nic at Hang­ing Rock

The Week (US) - - 26 Arts -

Fans of Peter Weir’s Pic­nic at Hang­ing Rock might think the haunt­ing 1975 film couldn’t be im­proved on. Yet this six-part adap­ta­tion of Joan Lind­say’s novel about the dis­ap­pear­ance of a group of Aus­tralian school­girls dur­ing the sum­mer of 1900 feels, in its look and con­cerns about fe­male power, like a sis­ter project to Hulu’s The Hand­maid’s Tale. Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones is ter­rific as an enig­matic head­mistress. Avail­able for stream­ing Fri­day, May 25, Ama­zon news me­dia as the en­emy of the peo­ple. Sun­day, May 27, at 8 p.m., Show­time Be­gins
