The reality of summer fading into fall is on the books this week with the flicks to help transition out of the best time of the year. Loss of innocence, moving on, looking back and seeing the full view of the summer that was. No matter how old we get, the sounds of summer change and fade away but those of summer often are the loudest with the late nights, trips, sunburns and frankly boatload of memories we’ve created.
Movies might take up a sliver of our fullest summers but they are a part of the pie nonetheless. From Crooklyn and a summer on the stoop to anxiety of the school day in Eight Grade, this time of year is one of reflection, happiness and melancholy, yet they end up being the ones we look back on with some of the most reverence of any memories we have.
