Preview, Amazon’s “Picnic at Hanging Rock” revisits an Aussie classic

Peter Weir’s original film — mid-70s mysterious, sensual, creepy, launched Australian cinema in the mid-70s. You simply cannot overstate the importance of this classic import, with its many overtones and subtexts, the first time the world saw actresses like Rachel Roberts and Jacki Weaver.

In the new “limited series,” Natalie Dormer of “Captain America” and “The Tudors” and “Game of Thrones” is the martinet of a teacher who loses some of her girls’ school students at an Australian landmark.
