Essential viewing for any "Picnic" fan, 27 December 2004
Author: Michelle Murphy from Sydney, Australia

I've just watched this documentary after receiving the Director's Cut of Picnic at Hanging Rock on DVD for Christmas (it's included on Disc Two), and found it truly compulsive viewing! I've adored the film (and of course the book) since I was a young girl and am lucky enough to have been to the Rock etc, and so was fascinated to hear about how the film came to "be" and, more interestingly, what has happened to the cast and crew in the 30 years since its release. I'm a huge Anne-Louise Lambert fan so was delighted to see such a long interview with her and see how beautifully she's aged :o) And of course to hear everyone's recollections about the making of the film, some of their eerie experiences at the Rock, and the behind-the-scenes gossip (they don't hold anything back!). Completely fascinating stuff!
