On May 6, Foxtel will stream a six-episode series based on Australian author Joan Lindsay's 1967 classic novel Picnic at Hanging Rock. But no new adaptation will ever replace Peter Weir's 1975 film version - still one of cinema's most gorgeous and eerie mysteries.

Australian director Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock -- about a group of Victorian schoolgirls who inexplicably vanish during a Valentine's Day outing in 1900 -- has earned both a cult following and critical respect in the years since its 1975 release. Now the dreamy, eerie tale is getting new life as a six-part TV miniseries.
