‘Picnic at Hanging Rock': Natalie Dormer Tells Us Why It Was ‘Delicious’ to ‘Unravel’ in Adaptation
Natalie Dormer is mad about her latest gig, “Picnic at Hanging Rock.” Partly because she gets to go mad in the new Amazon limited series based on Joan Lindsay’s iconic Australian novel of the same name.
