I hope you’re getting to experience fall in all its glory, but if you’d rather immerse yourself in the cinematic world of fall, pop in one of these movies and turn your air down low so you feel a little chilled. Cover up with a warm blanket, a cup of hot apple cider, and pretend you live somewhere as picturesque in the fall as these films depict.
1. You’ve Got Mail
Heavens above, I love this movie. I’ll find just about any excuse to watch it. I love the meet-cute, and the fact that books surround them and seem to be their own character in the film. I love the unique characters, the witty conversations, and the beautiful scenery. The film opens up with talk of fall, and buying school supplies. Fall always makes me want to buy school supplies. The storyline drifts over into winter and spring, but fall seems to be a character all of its own, as well. What a lovely story.
3. Homeward Bound
As an animal lover, I adore this movie. As someone who isn’t a huge fan of crying, I have to try to avoid this movie. But the characters, and their situations, and their owners…I just love them all. The plot covers the end of summer and fall through Thanksgiving, and I always think of the ending first when I think of this movie. Ergo, it makes the list.
4. Good Will Hunting
There are so many things I love about this movie. Robin Williams. How do you like them apples?! The rise of the underdog. Faith. Brilliant fall colors and heart to hearts. Yes, please.
5. Remember the Titans (and every other football movie, ever, probably)
Ah, football. Tension. Friendships. All sorts of social change. Such a great film. After all, nothing says fall like football!
6. Dead Poets Society
Sadly, I’ve only seen clips of this classic. But it’s on my list of must-watch films, so I had to include it. It’s apparently pretty famous for its fall scenes, as well as the amazing-ness that is Robin Williams.
I can only watch this once every few years, as it is so incredibly heartbreaking. But also beautiful, and set it the fall. So there’s that.
