We’ve found the perfect list of films to embrace even romanticize the rainy days ahead. We hope you can put on your favorite sweater, cozy up and enjoy one or more of these critically acclaimed films on a cold fall day. . . Stay dry out there!
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Andy Dufresne, played by Tim Robbins, spent 20 years in prison for the murder of his wife and her lover in this 1994 movie. In this epic rain scene, Dufresne escapes during a storm and lets the rain wash over him.
It’s often raining in Magnolia, but the most epic “rain” scene doesn’t involve liquid precipitation, but rather a downpour of frogs.
Jurassic Park (1993)
Steven Spielberg’s 1993 movie has a Tyrannosaurus Rex breaking out of a dinosaur theme park. The creature’s footsteps make cups of water shake ominously in the car where visitors are stuck during a power outage. Rain falls throughout, streaking the car’s windows and adding to the sense of gloom and doom.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
In this classic 1961 film, Audrey Hepburn plays a New York socialite named Holly Golightly. The famous rain scene depicts Holly and her love interest searching for her cat in the rain.
The Notebook (2004)
Kissing in the rain was hardly a new movie concept when the protagonists of The Notebook, played by Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, gave it a go. But their passionate reunion after years apart gave the old trope a whole new meaning. The movie captured the hearts of viewers and became an iconic scene in a favorite romantic drama.
