The Fabelmans

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Fabelmans is a 2022 American coming-of-age drama movie directed by Steven Spielberg, who co-wrote and co-produced it with Tony Kushner. The movie is a bit of an autobiographical story based on Spielberg's early years and first years as a filmmaker.

It stars Gabriel LaBelle as Sammy, alongside Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, and Judd Hirsch. The movie is dedicated to the memories of Spielberg's real-life parents Leah Adler and Arnold Spielberg.[1]

The movie received seven nominations at the 95th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director for Spielberg, Best Actress for Williams, Best Supporting Actor for Hirsch.

It also earned five nominations at the 80th Golden Globe Awards in 2023, winning Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director for Spielberg.
