Picnic (1997)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Robert Earl Keen; Genre: Country

Like his buddy Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen can turn an ordinary lovelorn tale into a countrified slice of film noir. From the drunken louts of ''Shades of Gray'' to the hilarious ''Then Came Lo Mein,'' Keen's vivid scenarios in Picnic pack more punch than the usual Austin twang and bang. B+
