Daybill Poster.Picnic at Hanging Rock is a 1975 Australian mystery film that was produced by Hal and Jim McElroy, directed by Peter Weir (Witness), and starring Rachel Roberts, Dominic Guard, Helen Morse (A Town Called Alice), Vivean Gray and Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom). It was adapted by Cliff Green from the 1967 novel of the same name by Joan Lindsay, who was deliberately ambiguous about whether the events had really taken place; however, the story is entirely fictitious. The plot involves the disappearance of several schoolgirls and their teacher during a picnic at Hanging Rock, Victoria on Valentine's Day in 1900, and the subsequent effect on the local community. Picnic at Hanging Rock was a commercial and critical success. It went on to draw international attention to the then-emerging Australian New Wave of cinema. Picnic at Hanging Rock grossed $5,120,000 in box office sales in Australia. This is equivalent to approximately $23,269,160 in 2016 Australian dollars.
