Gone Girls: A Double Bill

MUBI Special

We’re thrilled to present a double bill of films dealing with the unexpected disappearance of the female characters at the center of their stories. From the Australian countryside of the beginning of last century to 60s swinging London, these two fascinating mysteries weave an intricate maze of presences and absences.

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Peter Weir Australia, 1975

The second part of our Gone Girls Double Bill, Peter Weir’s adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s novel is among the best films to ever come out of Australia. Having gained cult status, this landmark mystery fuses glowing, startling cinematography with an undercurrent of deep unease—and it will haunt you.

Bunny Lake Is Missing

Otto Preminger United Kingdom, 1965

Preminger may have beat Hitch at his own game with this calculated and unpredictable thriller filled to the brim with anxiety and dread. Starring an earthbound Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) providing one of the most inspired and unusual performances of the 60s. Bonus: look out for The Zombies!
