TIFF 2022 – Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans
Set in post-World War II Arizona, The Fabelmans follows Sammy Fabelman from age seven to eighteen, as he discovers his love of film and discovering a shattering family secret. Gabriel LaBelle, a 19-year-old actor from Vancouver plays the central role of Sammy in the Steven Spielberg film.
Mitzi Fabelman shares her son’s love for the arts, as she’s a skilled pianist and is heard telling her husband, a computer engineer, that she wishes he was more encouraging about Sammy’s filmmaking endeavors, which he dismisses as “playful” and “imaginative.” The Fabelmans’ cast also includes Seth Rogen, Judd Hirsch, Jeannie Berlin, Julia Butters, Robin Bartlett and Keeley Karsten.
TIFF 2022 People’s Choice Award: was Steven Spielberg’s The Fablemans. Congratulations to the film, as it was a personal perspective of Spielberg’s life growing up. Sometimes humorous, awkward, but always compelling in the life of Steven Spielberg.
