PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK
June 27, 2018  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 12:30 p.m. ET

 

Last month, Amazon presented an involving, well-acted new miniseries version of Picnic at Hanging Rock, expanding upon the story told in Peter Weir’s atmospheric, influential 1975 Australian film. Whether or not you’ve seen the miniseries, you should make an effort to see this telecast of Weir’s version, starring Rachel Roberts (pictured) as the imperious, mysterious Mrs. Appleyard. And watch for a young Jacki Weaver, now co-starring in Netflix’s Secret City miniseries, as Minnie.
