A deeply personal portrait of 20th Century American childhood, Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans (2022) is a coming-of-age story about a young man’s discovery of a shattering family secret and an exploration of the power of movies to help us see the truth about each other and ourselves.
About the filmmaker:
Steven Spielberg, often considered one of the most popular and influential filmmakers in the history of cinema, inspired audiences and future storytellers with his science-fiction and adventure blockbusters—like Jaws (1975), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Jurassic Park (1993) and the Indiana Jones films—as well as more serious films addressing the Holocaust, the Transatlantic slave trade, war, and terrorism. He won the Academy Award for Best Director for Schindler’s List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998), and has also been awarded a Kennedy Center honor, a Cecil B. DeMille Award, and an AFI Life Achievement Award. His musical adaptation West Side Story (2021) received seven nominations at the 94th Academy Awards.
Inspired by Spielberg’s own childhood, The Fabelmans (2022) is written by Spielberg and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner, who earned Academy Award nominations for his screenplays for Spielberg’s Lincoln (2012) and Munich (2012).See our upcoming films
