Five Fall Movies to Watch This Weekend to Celebrate Fall

Nothing gets me more excited for fall than when the weather cools down, I can grab a slice of apple pie and my fuzzy socks and enjoy one of my favorite fall movies. I made some sunflower butter cookies today since I miss peanut butter cookies so much, but a peanut allergy kind of gets in the way of that. Everyone else is out at the cider mill today too (I live right down the street from one) but a gluten and apple intolerance also gets in the way of that…so sunflower butter cookies and movie day it is!

Five Fall Movies to Watch This Weekend to Celebrate Fall

// LOVE STORY, 1970

Once you look past the cheesy line this movie is known for this is one of the best movies with fall themes – the color are stunning, Ali MacGraw’s clothes are trend-worthy and Ryan O’Neal is perfectly preppy. Set against a dreamy East Coast backdrop, this is easily one of my favorite fall movies.


I don’t know what it is about the very first Harry Potter movie but the pumpkins, leaves and themes about the start of school makes it a great fall pick.

// ST. ELMO’S FIRE, 1985

Set in New England about recent Georgetown graduates this is one of my favorite Brat Pack films – so many complex and emotional relationships make up this story about fall, falling for someone and even falling out of love – well worth a Saturday afternoon!


Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence give life to mental illness and the dynamics of pressure on modern relationships. Be warned though, this isn’t just a “love story”, this is a journey of mental stability, of families, and of love in the modern world.


You can’t have a fall movies list and not include Dead Poets Society. This one you probably want to grab a glass – or a bottle – of comfort wine to watch with, though.
