The Movies We’re Looking Forward To This Month
In case you were wondering what to do on your September weekends
With the way the weather has been, it’s getting pretty hard to stick to a plan that can actually push through. Wanted to go on a road trip to the beach? Whoops, the clouds are suddenly gray. Looking forward to a ramen night with friends? Oh, it just got too hot to slurp up some spicy broth. But the one thing you can always do—rain or shine—is watch a movie.
Fortunately for us, September is a promising month for films.
