Deserving of excellent reviews from specialist critics and the public who could see it at the Toronto Film Festival, where it took home the People’s Choice award, we reviewed with the premiere The Fabelmans, the new and the last? directed by Steven Spielberg.
At 75 years old, the renowned director with a variety of titles ranging from Los Cazadores del Arkadida, passing through ET, The Purple Color, The Empire of the Sun, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Amistad, Salvando al Soldier Ryan, Caballo de Guerra, Artificial Inteligencia, Sentencia Previa, Lincoln, Puente de Espías, The Post and many more, he has no new titles planned for his directorial debut.
He does have an arsenal of proposals in which he will work as a producer, including Transformers: Rise of the Beasts (2023), Gremlins 3 (2023), a new installment of the Indiana Jones franchise (2023), two sequels to Tin Tin and series of television
But The Fabelmans, it seems, will be the last time we will go behind the camera, since in some way, being a quasi-biographical film, it gives all the signs of being a security of self-homage and farewell to the public.
What is the story about?
Based on a script written by Spielberg himself and Tony Kushner, it is a biography about Sammy Fabelman, a young aspiring filmmaker, based on Spielberg’s story. The film stars Gabriel LaBelle as Sammy, with Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Seth Rogen and Judd Hirsch in supporting roles, and is dedicated to the memories of Spielberg’s real parents, Leah Adler and Arnold Spielberg.
