I know it's by Steven Spielberg, wasn't aware of the premise but I'm guessing it's loosely based on his life (I'm not too familiar with cinema before the 80s) but was rather slow and almost awkwardly pointless with the movie heading in like 5 diff directions but ultimately not going anywhere. with the biggest scene of the movie his debut at prom and that's it. Def could have had more depth as it feels like a lazy outing for Mr Spielberg. he may have wrote this movie over the weekend.

If you’re looking for a film that explains where the Spielbergian tropes you know and love came from, then The Fabelmans is for you.

Immediately joining the first ranks of artists’ memoirs, Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans is both a vivid capturing of the auteur’s earliest flashes of filmmaking insight and a portrait, full of love yet unclouded by nostalgia, of the family that made him.
