Golden Globes Winner 2023 – Best Picture (Drama) & Director!
Part memoir, part ode to the power of the movies, The Fabelmans finds director Steven Spielberg digging at the family roots that helped make him a beloved filmmaker — and proves he hasn’t lost his magic touch. In his retelling, young Sammy Fabelman falls in love with movies after his parents take him to see The Greatest Show on Earth, the epic 1952 Cecile B. DeMille circus-life drama. Armed with a camera, Sammy starts to make his own films at home, much to the delight of his supportive mother, played by Michelle Williams. (PG-13, 2h 31m)
“This is Spielberg’s most personal film, and it’s intriguing to watch him pay homage to the directors who made up his group of friends in the early 1970s.”- Odie Henderson, Boston Globe
“…uplifting and yet deeply melancholy and really funny. Typical Spielberg. Pulling on multiple heartstrings at the same time, to great effect. “ – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“The Fabelmans is, as the title says, somewhat of a fable and wonderful in both large and small ways, even if Spielberg can’t help but soften the rougher, potentially lacerating edges.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
