a picnic in the park……

On the weekend I went on a lovely picnic in the park with friends. Lots of yummy food and wine. It was nice to have a good catch up.

It made me think about what films feature picnic scenes. Not so many that I can recall. Here are a few.


This 1955 film is based on a the successful play by William Inge. Directed by Joshua Logan it stars  William Holden & Kim Novak.

“Emotions are ignited amongst the complacent townsfolk when a handsome drifter arrives in a small Kansas community on the morning of the Labour Day picnic”


Peter Weir’s mysterious Australian classic was released in 1975 and was part of the new wave of Australian cinema that took on the world. Set in 1900 a party of schoolgirls disappear during a picnic in the Victorian countryside.


Coming Soon – I bet you can’t wait!

A new 3D movie starring he popular TV cartoon character Yogi Bear who has a fondness for pilfering pic-a-nic baskets. Join Yogi and his pal Boo-Boo as they avoid the clutches of Jellystone Park Ranger Smith.
