When I was five years old my father took me and my little brother to see “JAWS”. It terrified me! So much so that even though we were on land I kept looking out the back window to see if the shark was following us during the car ride home. That night I slept in a little ball because I was sure if I stretched my legs out the shark would bite them off. Worse yet, the carpet in my room was blue and I was positive later that night it was going to turn to water and the shark was going to get me. Today it is my #1 favorite movie of all time. That is my Steven Spielberg story.
The Oscar winning filmmaker is now ready to share his own personal fable with his latest, “The Fabelmans”. This is more than just a “How Steven Spielberg got interested in making movies” tale. This dives much deeper. So much so that he contacted his three sisters and got their permission to make it before he went ahead with production. The revelations go much deeper as we see how his parents had less than an ideal marriage and the anti-Semitism he faced as a teenager.
