8 Best Fall-themed Movies To Watch In 2023

Are you wondering what are the best fall-themed movies to watch this year? Then you’re at the right place!

What is it about fall that makes us sigh and smile with satisfaction and hope? The colorful leaves, the chill breeze, the scents of earth and warm food, and the serenity of snuggling in a thick blanket cannot be described in words. 

With the pandemic still active this year, we’ll have to spend more time at home than outside. While we can fill our days with all sorts of activities, we still want to do nothing sometimes. That’s where movies and shows provide us the required company and entertainment. 

Best Fall-Themed Movies To Watch This Autumn 2023

Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime have a wonderful collection of movies (old and new) for various seasons and moods. Reminds you of the Christmas movies by Hallmark, doesn’t it? 

It’s probably a little too early for those. But yeah, we’ve got a list of fall movies for you to enjoy. You might have seen some of them more than once. Good thing that there are no restrictions on watching the same movie a hundred times or more. We all have one such favorite movie, don’t we? 

Let’s start with the fall-themed film list, shall we? 

1. When Harry Met Sally

Looks like we cannot have a fall-themed movie list without this one! How can we even think of not adding it, right? Be it the iconic pairing of Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal or the wonderful autumn of New York in the background, this movie is just perfect to watch on an autumn night. Don’t forget your pumpkin spice latte or the warm cider. 

2. Dead Poets Society

Oh, well, don’t tear up already. This is one of Robin Williams’ best performances. A story about an English teacher who taught his students to be different is always going to warm your heart. You do know that the story was set in the fall, don’t you? Of course, you do. 

3. You’ve Got Mail

We’ve got another Meg Ryan’s rom-com for you. The gen that’s used to smartphones and instant messaging will find something novel about exchanging letters and getting to know a person through their words. A sweet tale that’ll make you and your mom teary-eyed, is it not?

4. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Yes! If anybody says you’re too old for cartoons, you know what to do, right? We don’t need such people spoiling our fun. The Peanuts team has been making us smile and laugh for decades. They make such an adorable group, don’t they? This fall, watch them bond over pumpkins for the nth time and let happiness envelop you. 

5. Fantastic Mr. Fox

What? You thought we’d be happy with just one animation movie? This adaptation of Roald Dahl’s book with the same title takes us on the adventures of, you got it right, Mr. Fox, who needs to steal to keep his family alive. The fall background adds such colour to the movie, doesn’t it? 

6. E.T- The Extra-Terrestrial

E.T- The Extra Terrestrial

An alien left behind on the earth and cared for by a young kid. If you say you haven’t cried when watching this movie, we aren’t going to believe you. One of Spielberg’s wonderful movies, this one is set in the fall. Remember how the kids dressed up the ET for Halloween and all the fun they had? 

7. Autumn in New York

We’ve got another tear-jerker love story for you. What happens when a womaniser (played by Richard Gere) falls for a woman (Winona Ryder) with just a handful of months to live? With the title being as clear as it is, do we need to mention that the story is set in New York during fall? 

8. Friday Night Lights

You thought we’d end the list without a single movie about sports? Not likely, readers. This is one of the best sports movies that’ll make you cheer, clap, cry, and smile as the football team captures your heart. If you’ve watched the show but not the movie, time to change that. 


So that’s it? Of course not. There’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Scent of a Woman, Rudy, A Beautiful Mind, Good Will Hunting, October Sky, The Blind Side, Matilda, Halloweentown, and many more to choose from. This fall, binge on your favorite fall movies and enjoy the sleepy nights.

  1. Great movie list. I will check a few of them and watch Sunday afternoon with my partner. Is like our ritual to watch good movies on Sunday.

  2. Such a lovely selection of movies which I have watched and won’t mind watching again. I would like to see Autumn in New York though, as this is one film I have not seen as yet

  3. These are all wonderful movie choice. I am especially partial to Charlie Brown…any Charlie Brown movie as they were the best growing up, I have the collection now 🙂
