20 Fall Movies on Netflix That Fully Embrace All That Autumn Has to Offer
The fall season has so much to offer: a new school year, chilly fall nights by the fire and lots of football. Before you skip ahead and dive completely into Halloween mode, celebrate all that autumn brings by watching one of these fall movies on Netflix. While some of the movies on this list actually take place in the fall months (at a football stadium, no less), we made sure that all of them get the season’s vibe just right with heartbreaking love stories, school-age drama and exciting thrills.
Work your way down this list of enchanting romances, family-friendly comedies and psychological thrillers (we’ll leave the horror flicks for Halloween) from now through November to make the most of the season. Looking for something that the kids will love? Go with Hubie Halloween or Paranorman to tap into the season’s spooky side. Want something based on a true love story? Press play on The Dig and Loving, both of which promise a history lesson as well as entertainment. Whatever you pick, make sure you have your popcorn, warm apple cider and other movie-watching essentials ready for a fun movie night at home.
