Berlinale Series opens with the visually thrilling TV adaptation of the Australian cult classic Picnic at Hanging Rock. Natalie Dormer plays the strict headmistress of a boarding school trying to ensure that her pupils receive a suitably decorous education. But we are led to question whether she herself has always led a demure life. Her dark past catches up with her, and then three girls disappear mysteriously during a school outing.
