When a new Spielberg picture comes out you pay attention, and THE FABELMANS proves that he’s still got it after 63 years of making movies. It follows a fictionalized version of Spielberg’s early childhood with The Fabelmans standing in for his real family, from his transformative first theater experience to the very beginnings of the directing career that would go on to define Hollywood for decades.

Spielberg is able to tell his story in a way that is both nostalgic and grounded without losing any of the rough edges. The love and pain that comes with balancing your passion with family is illustrated beautifully here, be it filmmaking, music, or engineering. It helps that everyone in the cast turns in an immaculate performance. Michelle Williams and Paul Dano are standouts as parents Mitzi and Burt Fabelman, Gabrielle LaBelle embodies Sammy Fabelman (the fictionalized version of Spielberg) perfectly, and we have to give a special shoutout to Judd Hirsch, who gives a short but delightful performance as Sammy’s estranged uncle. Filled with heart, heartbreak, humor, and all the Amblin-y goodness we know and love, it’s sure to put a big, sloppy grin on your face.
