Set in a very different era of 1900 Australia, this very appetizing Picnic, like the Weir pic, focuses on the consequences of the Valentine's Day disappearance and presumed death of three students and a teacher from the tyrannical Appleyard College girls school, run by Dormer's chilling character.

At 29 minutes, a black and white photograph of the students and the staff is taken, and then the resulting negative is quickly shown on screen. Mrs. Appleyard (Natalie Dormer) is wearing a dark red dress, and in 1900 all black and white film stock is non-panchromatic, and completely unable to capture anything dark red colored, so her dress should seen as black in the negative, but is incorrectly seen as white in the negative.
