    Annie Hall.
    Fall means a lot of things: apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes, and Halloween (obviously). But along with all this, there’s something about the crisp weather and changing leaves that flips a switch in your head. Sort of like your brain saying, “cancel all your going-out plans tonight and curl up with a movie on your couch instead.” Sounds tempting, right? So go ahead, give in...We’ve rounded up our favorite fall flicks for the ultimate autumn-themed movie marathon, ranging from the old school--hello, Robert Redford and Ali MacGraw!-- to the newer favorites. And while they might differ in genre and in the casts, the common thread running through all of these films is the fact that each and every one just screams “fall.” Can’t decide? We’ve included all of the trailers below, so you can pick which one (or three) you’re going to watch tonight. Check out our list, and if you think we missed any, add your own here!
    Annie Hall
    Diane Keaton, Woody Allen, and outfit inspiration to last you all season long. What more could you possibly want?!Love StoryNo fall movie list would be complete without this tear-jerker starring Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw. Warning: this one might be best watched alone. When Harry Met Sally Nora Ephron’s classic romantic comedy will never make you think of Katz’s Delicatessen the same way again. Dead Poets Society
    An oldie but a goodie, filled with preppy boys in varsity sweaters, Robin Williams, and a baby-faced Ethan Hawk.Rushmore
    Wes Anderson’s comedy about Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) just never gets old. Watch it now and download the amazing soundtrack after. Election
    We don’t recommend acting like Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) in real life, but we do recommend copying her on-point prep style. Bonnie and Clyde
    A life of crime doesn’t seem that bad--especially when it includes Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and an epic wardrobe. Remember the Titans
    Nothing says fall quite like football season, and nothing says football like this 2000 film. Or, you could watch Rudy for even more pigskin. The Graduate
    If the Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack doesn’t get you immediately --or the fact that this is an instant classic-- just go ahead and press play and prepare to be seduced. Tanner Hall
    Rooney Mara gets involved in a touchy situation during this scandalous prep school drama, costarring Brie Larson.Frances Ha
    This Noah Baumbach comedy will make you want to drag out your giant thrifted leather jacket and prance around on the streets, just like Greta Gerwig.
    Inglourious Basterds
    The film’s Jewish heroine Shoshannah, played by Melanie Laurent, has the most perfect fall wardrobe, including palazzo pants, a newsboy cap, and a killer (literally) red dress.-- STEFF YOTKA
    Grey GardensIt always seemed to be fall on the Beale Estate. SY
    Manhattan Who doesn’t want to be Tracy? Or at least have her collection of button-downs? SY
    Une femme est une femmeAnna Karina’s red cardigan, gingham skirt combo is how I wish I looked all fall. It’s also oddly similar to Prada’s fall ’13 collection, meaning it’s tres cool at the moment. SY
    I am LoveWhile this movie spans almost a year, it’s Tilda Swinton’s character’s fall coats and velvet shoes that will always stand out in my mind as the ideal bourgeois wardrobe for autumn. SY
    The Breakfast ClubVarsity jackets, pencil skirts, scarves... The Breakfast Club is like a how-to for looking cool September to November. SY
