The Fabelmans: What is it About?
The official synopsis for ‘The Fabelman’ by Amblin is:
“A deeply personal portrait of a 20th century American childhood, Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans is a cinematic memory of the forces, and family, that shaped the filmmaker’s life and career. A universal coming-of-age story about an isolated young man’s pursuit of his dreams, the film is an exploration of love, artistic ambition, sacrifice, and the moments of discovery that allow us to see the truth about ourselves, and our parents, with clarity and compassion.
Sammy Fabelman (Gabrielle LaBelle; The Predator, American Gigolo series) is devoted to filmmaking, an interest that is celebrated and championed by his artistic mother, Mitzi (four-time Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams). Sammy’s successful, scientific father, Burt (Paul Dano; The Batman, There Will Be Blood), supports Sammy’s work but views it as an unserious hobby.
Over the years, Sammy has become the de facto documentarian of his family’s adventures, as well as the director of his increasingly elaborate amateur film productions starring his sisters and friends. By 16, Sammy is both the primary observer and archivist of his family story, but when his family moves west, Sammy discovers a heartbreaking truth about his mother that will redefine their relationship and alter the future for himself and his entire family.“
