I’m completely pumped to see the end of Picnic at Hanging Rock. It was created by Foxtel and shot in Australia and based off the novel by Joan Lindsay.
Much like Britannia I saw the teaser trailer pop up while I was watching something else on TV. It was somewhat period and Natalie Dormer is in it (it or Marjorie Tyrell from Game of Thrones) so I was in from the start. Prior to starting the series I watched the old 1975 movie version when they aired it about a week prior to the series. If you haven’t seen it you’ll definitely heard the old title track to the movie.
The new series is definitely more eerie and it goes into the background of certain characters more than the original. It’s shot beautifully too so you get sucked in. It’s also compiled like it’s a true story.
I have 2 episodes to go and I’m pumped as hell.
