“Movies are dreams that you will never forget!”.
This December, the living legend of cinema Steven Spielberg will introduce us to “The Fableman Family” and give us the incredible opportunity to touch his innermost world.
Inspired by Spielberg’s own childhood, The Fablemans is a deeply personal coming-of-age story of a young man who discovers a shocking secret that threatens to destroy the already fragile balance of his family’s complex relationships. The film is a meditation on the past, created with touching sincerity and nostalgia, and a loving explanation of the seventh art, which has the ability to reveal to us the truth about the world, about others and about ourselves.
“The Fableman Family” tells the story of Sammy Fableman, who grows up in New Jersey and Arizona in the years after World War II, torn between his artistic, art-loving mother Mitzi, who encourages him to follow his heart at all costs, and his pragmatic, science-minded father Burt, who thinks his passion for filmmaking is just a hobby. The family dynamic is complicated by his three sisters and his father’s cute colleague Benny, who is a constant presence in their home even as the family moves to different cities. With only his camera and his talent at his disposal, Sammy tries to discover himself and his place in the world around him.
In addition to directing The Fablemans, Steven Spielberg also co-wrote the screenplay, a role he hasn’t played since 2001, when he committed himself to another very personal project, Artificial Intelligence. The film was co-written by Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, who is a two-time Oscar nominee for his work on Spielberg’s Munich and Lincoln.
The cast includes four-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Gabriel LaBelle, Seth Rogen, Jeanie Berlin, Judd Hirsch, Keeley Carston, and more. Steven Spielberg, Tony Kushner and Christy Macosco Krieger (The Power Journal, West Side Story) are producing.
We discover the personal story of one of the greatest directors with The Fableman Family from December 2 only in theaters.
