Weekend Picks

From the falling leaves, to the obligatory tweed, this weekend we celebrate films with memorable moments in autumn.

When Harry Met Sally

Okay, maybe “the restaurant” scene in When Harry Met Sally is a little more memorable, but who could forget those walks through Central Park?

In 1977, college graduates Harry Burns and Sally Albright  share a contentious car ride from Chicago to New York, during which they argue about whether men and women can ever truly be strictly platonic friends. Ten years later, Harry and Sally meet again at a bookstore, and in the company of their respective best friends, Jess  and Marie , attempt to stay friends without sex becoming an issue between them.

Rushmore

Max Finch captures the spirit of Rushmore Academy, without question. The film also does a pretty good job in capturing the spirit of autumn.

When a beautiful first-grade teacher arrives at a prep school, she soon attracts the attention of an ambitious teenager named Max ), who quickly falls in love with her. Max turns to the father of two of his schoolmates for advice on how to woo the teacher. However, the situation soon gets complicated when Max’s new friend becomes involved with her, setting the two pals against one another in a war for her attention.
