Picnic At Hanging Rock Script Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Picnic At Hanging Rock script is here for all you
quotes spouting fans of the movie by Peter Weir. This script is a transcript
that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of
Picnic At Hanging Rock. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in
there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel
free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.
Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie
