Synopsis

On Valentine’s Day, 1900, a party of Australian schoolgirls from a strict boarding school visit the ancient volcanic formation, Hanging Rock. Later in the day, several girls disappear without trace. A search party repeatedly returns to the rock to look for them and the reasons for their vanishing.

Our take

Concocting an eerie vision of cloistered girlhood, which inspired countless filmmakers including Sofia Coppola, Peter Weir’s boarding-school mystery finds horrors lurking in the great outdoors. Steeped in an atmosphere of unease, this haunting tale of sexual hysteria is a bona fide cult classic.
