This November, famed Hollywood director, producer and screenwriter Steven Spielberg plans to release his first film in over five years. There are high expectations for Spielberg’s new cinematic project The Fabelmans. The tale is a highly personal account of his early life and features plenty of autobiographical elements. It tells how Spielberg got into filmmaking, his childhood and includes gossipy details about many of Hollywood’s biggest stars. So far, it has only been screened in Los Angeles on Sunday evening but it will open worldwide soon. Forbes magazine listed Spielberg as the fourth-most powerful producer in the world just a few years ago. And while his power remains immense, those ambitions may be put on hold after The Fabelmans is released because it is essentially a love letter to Spielberg. The film has been described as unabashedly self-indulgent. The director describes it as an exposé of his life and says that he was “shocked to discover how little I knew about myself” when he began working on the film.
