“Picnic at Hanging Rock” – Blu-ray Unboxing

Hello, again! I have an unboxing of Criterion’s release of Peter Weir’s Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975). I first saw the film last year and I was completely floored by how mysterious and beautiful it is. While the story has no real ending—no conclusions are made to the disappearance of some girls while picnicking at Hanging Rock (just like the original novel it’s based on; the novelist, Joan Lindsay, did originally write a last chapter explaining what occurred, but that chapter was removed from the novel’s first and subsequent publishings)—I feel like you don’t need it. It’s difficult to explain, so I suggest you pick up a copy of Criterion’s release or watch it on Hulu Plus. It’s truly an astounding film, and I’m glad I bought it. Criterion’s set looks great and also includes a new release of Lindsay’s novel. Take a look:
