When the leaves begin to change colors, and pumpkin spice lattes are all the rage, we all know that this means the crisp days of autumn are upon us. People hang up their beach towels and fold up their lawn chairs in favor of sweaters, boots, and evenings huddled under the blankets with their favorite warm beverages in hand. Though there are a ton of fall outdoor activities like apple picking and holiday shopping, shorter days filled with crisp air is also a time to catch up on some classic movies.

From classic narratives filled with drama to other movies that have romances and heartbreak at the center, here is the ultimate list of fall movies that you and your loved ones can cozy up with this autumn.

We all know that the end of summer and the beginning of fall means two things, back to school and football season. The classic football film, Remember the Titans has all of those themes and a sprinkling of American history wrapped into one film. The movie is set in 1971 in Alexandria, Virginia, a town reeling from the integration of both their high school and their football team.

Denzel Washington plays Herman Boone, a real-life football coach who was hired by the school board to integrate the reluctant.  T. C. Williams High School football team over Bill Yoast (Will Patton), the school’s longtime assistant coach. With suspicion between them and a community on the brink, the two men must learn to work together to put together a well-rounded football team with young men who must learn to respect themselves and their differences. Remember the Titans is the perfect fall flick.
