6 famous garden scenes from classic films

The Favourite (2018)

A unique twist on the traditional period drama, Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite certainly exhibits plenty of aesthetic highpoints during its 2-hour runtime. Not least, the luxurious English lawns and perfectly sculpted hedges of Queen Anne’s royal court gardens.


The Shining (1980)

In Stanley Kubrick’s famous Stephen King novel adaptation, an unhinged Jack Torrence chases his son through a snow-covered hedge maze. One heartstopping scene; one neatly-trimmed hedge maze.


Edward Scissorhands (1990)

A touching moment in Tim Burton’s gothic fantasy classic. Kim happily dances in her garden, while Edward Scissorhands coats her in flakes of snow as he carves a majestic ice sculpture.


Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)

Perhaps the most magical garden ever committed to celluloid. Willy Wonka’s confectionary-inspired creation amazes guests and with its vivid candy flora, boiled sweet boats and chocolate rivers. A garden good enough to eat. Just ask Augustus Gloop!


Spirited Away (2001)

Can you be envious of flowers that don’t actually exist? Well, if you can, Hayao Miyazaki’s Oscar-winning anime has plenty to choose from. A world ripe with magical gardens and rows and rows of mystical plantlife. 


Kill Bill, Volume I (2003)

During the climax of Kill Bill Vol. 1, Tarantino’s revenge-seeking assassin Bride finally overcomes her mortal enemy O-Ren Ishii in a grizzly fight to the death. The setting: a stunning Japanese-themed garden blanketed in snow.
