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.

You think [Spielberg's] giving you everything and that it's all right there on the surface, but the movie lingers in the mind, and the longer it stays there, and the more times you re-watch it, the more you realize it's giving you something different from, and better than, what you saw the first time.

Bring out the Oscars for the year’s best movie, a personal best from Steven Spielberg about his own coming of age as a teen torn between his love for movies and family (Michelle Williams is incandescent as his troubled mom). You won’t forget this hilarious and heartfelt classic in the making.

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.
