I bet you all know that autumn is also known as fall in this part of the world – which marks the transition from summer to winter, and is characterized by the change in hues of leaves, and withering or shedding of leaves. Also during autumn, the duration of daylight becomes noticeably shorter and the temperature cools down considerably. Autumn traditionally starts from late September (September 21) and ends on December (December 21). However, we hear that winter now sets in early in some quarters – well, cheer up people, there is still “much to do about something” as we won’t let you miss out of the fun in this fall (no matter how short). Therefore kindly do us a favour - pour yourself a little whiskey (and maybe add lemon), or better still, grab your favorite beverage and nestle in with these classics and iconic movies that will remind you of autumn (even right after ithas ended), which have been rounded up for your pleasure - featuring football, high school elections, holiday romances, and stuff that catches your autumn/fall fancy. You should grab a popcorn too as you watch the classic autumn/fall movies of all time on this list of ours!
1. Dead Poets Society
‘Dead Poets Society’ is a 1989 American drama film with a 1959 setting of fictional elite conservative boarding school - St. Andrew's School in Middletown, Delaware. In the autumn of 1959, we are introduced to shy Todd Anderson who begins his senior year of high school at Welton Academy, an all-male, elite prep school. He is assigned one of Welton's most promising students, Neil Perry, as his roommate and is quickly accepted by Neil's friends. On the first day of classes, they are surprised by the unorthodox teaching methods of the new English teacher John Keating, a Welton alumnus who encourages his students to ‘make your lives extraordinary,’ a sentiment he summarizes with the Latin expression ‘Carpe Diem.’ Subsequent lessons include having them take turns standing on his desk to teach the boys how they must look at life in a different way. As the school year progresses, Keating's lessons and their involvement with the club encourage them to live their lives on their own terms. Directed by Peter Weir, written by Tom Schulman, and starring Robin Williams; the film received critical acclaim and was a box office success. It won the ‘BAFTA Award for Best Film,’ and ‘César Award,’ and ‘David di Donatello Award’ for Best Foreign Film. Schulman received an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his work. This movie reminds us of fall with it's ‘ back to school bustling,’ the prep school days, and Uniforms, and for this, it's a movie to watch (coupled with its good moral lessons)
