5 Films For The Ultimate Autumn Watchlist | Set Picks
As our (non-existent) summer has come to an end and the air is growing colder, here is a list of films to welcome in the cosiest season of all, autumn! These are my go-to’s before diving into horror and Halloween movies.
- When Harry Met Sally
Firstly is one of my all-time favourite movies, When Harry Met Sally! No other film gives off autumn vibes quite like this one does. There is something so romantic about New York City filled with autumnal colours and big chunky jumpers and hats. The slow-burn love story makes for a perfectly cosy evening in. Another Meg Ryan classic, You’ve Got Mail, is a great contender for this list.
- Little Women
Greta Gerwig’s retelling of the classic Little Women is beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. There’s something so warm about watching the March sisters grow together. The landscapes and colour palette make this a very cosy watch.
- Fantastic Mr Fox
Speaking of colour palettes, Fantastic Mr Fox is filled with oranges and browns making it so perfect for the season and (because it’s Wes Anderson) they are used in the most beautiful way. I grew up loving Roald Dahl’s stories and (as I’ve mentioned many times before) I adore Wes Anderson’s films so this is the perfect comfort combination for me.
- Harry Potter
If it’s a binge you’re after then you won’t find anything more autumnal than the Harry Potter series. Witches, wizards, castles, pumpkins, ghosts and lots of magic! Anything that makes you think of autumn can be found in these films.
- What We Do in the Shadows
What We Do in the Shadows is the perfect comedy for the season – wholesome, spooky and hilarious. This mockumentary is perfect for the lead-up to Halloween and if the film isn’t enough there’s always the series to binge too!
I hope you like this list – are there any films you would add? Maybe I’ll do a horror or Halloween addition at the end of the month. ★
