Fall is such a great time of the year in the movie world. There’s something about fall that’s just so cinematic. Even if you don’t have a real autumn season where you live, you can still live it via the movie world. If you’re jonesing for some fall weather, especially in the movies, watch these movies to make you so excited for the fall weather that’s on its way. If you don’t live in an area with fall weather, these movies are sure to placate some of your FOMO from missing out on classic fall weather.
1 Good Will Hunting
There’s something about a college campus that just screams autumn, and this movie’s no exception. It takes place in Boston in the fall, and it’s so collegiate and autumnal that you’ll be craving a Pumpkin Spice Latte a few minutes into the movie.
2 When Harry Met Sally
Almost all of Nora Ephron’s movies have an autumnal feel to them at one point or another, but When Harry Met Sally is the most autumnal of them all. In nearly every scene, Harry and Sally are seen doing something in the cool, fall New York City air. It’s every fall-lovers dream!
If you were a child in the late 90s and early 00s, you probably remember the Halloweentown franchise fondly. The Disney Channel Original Movie ushered in a ton of Halloween-themed movies on the Disney Channel that were more funny than scary, and this particular movie will bring back a ton of nostalgia to any kid from the late 90s!
4 High School Musical 3
The High School Musical franchise in general always reminds me of fall, even though the second movie takes place during summer vacation. I think that just going back to high school in the form of this movie reminds a lot of people, myself included of fall and the beginning of the new school year, especially High School Musical 3.
5 Autumn in New York
The title really sums up why it’ll get you excited for fall when it comes to this movie! Autumn in New York stars Winona Ryder and Richard Gere in… well… autumn in New York. It’s been on my own Netflix queue for a while now, and it looks like it’s simultaneously lovely and absolutely heartbreaking. If you’re looking for an autumnal movie to induce some tears, this is the movie for you!
6 Pitch Perfect
If going back to school and collegiate life reminds you of fall, Pitch Perfect is the perfect movie for you. It features Anna Kendrick playing Beca beginning her first year of college and all of the chaos and fun that comes along with that. She meets Jesse, played by Skylar Astin, joins an acapella group, and everyone’s dream idea of college happened. If you want to see how Beca ended up post-freshman year, don’t worry, Pitch Perfect 2 chronicles her senior year as well, giving us all of the fall feels!
7 Camp Rock 2
Camp Rock 2 is another movie that takes place during the summer that always gives me the fall feels. It reminds me of that transitional period between summer and fall when you’re sad for summer to be over but excited for the new season to start. If you’re currently experiencing that, check out this movie!
