Tomatometer quote iconPart memoir, part ode to the power of the movies, The Fabelmans finds Steven Spielberg digging at the family roots that helped make him a beloved filmmaker -- and proves he hasn’t lost his magic touch

Tara McNamara quote iconSentimental Spielberg origin story; bullying, pot, swearing.

Jim Judy quote iconI loved every minute of the flick, especially seeing the real and maybe somewhat fictionalized influences on Spielberg and his later works. It’s clearly his most personal film that he shares with us, warts and all. Hitting all the emotions without any maudlin semblance of sap, The Fabelmans is my current choice for the best film of the year.
