Autumn is the premium season for Netflix-nights-in. The chilled weather and falling leaves pair nicely with one of the streaming site's original movies, and luckily, come September there will be several to choose from. Whatever your genre preference, there's something for you; both documentaries and dramas alike are set for release, as well as films from some of the most revered directors working today including the Coen Brothers and Nicole Holofcener. The Netflix Original Movies coming this fall will contribute nicely to a queue already filled with films on your must-see list.
For people still recovering from the 4th of July, the realization that fall is coming soon might feel jarring, while for those gleefully planning their Halloween ensembles, it might feel like summer can't end soon enough. But no matter where you stand, get ready for some seriously intriguing fall releases from Netflix. The site is clearly no longer content to rely on the original series you've already marathoned and loved, as they're luring top film talent to join their catalogue. Plus, behind-the-scenes profiles of pop culture giants like Orson Welles or Quincy Jones are likely to drum up awards season conversation come winter. You can count on a few of these movies to win the award for best cozy night companion.
