“Movies are dreams that you never forget.”

A deeply personal portrait of 20th-century American childhood, Steven Spielberg’s The Fablemans is a coming-of-age story about a young man’s discovery of a shattering family secret and an exploration of the power of movies to help us see the truth about each other and ourselves.

The film’s ensemble cast includes four-time Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams ( Manchester by the Sea, My Week with Marilyn); Paul Dano ( The Batman, There Will Be Blood); Seth Rogen ( Steve Jobs, An American Pickle); Gabriel LaBelle ( The Predator, American Gigolo series); Oscar nominee Jeannie Berlin ( The Heartbreak Kid, Inherent Vice); Julia Butters ( Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, 13 Hours); Robin Bartlett ( Moonstruck, Lean on Me); Keeley Karsten ( Hunters, Evil Lives Here) and Academy Award nominee Judd Hirsch ( Uncut Gems, Ordinary People).

Inspired by Spielberg’s own childhood, The Fabelmans is written by Spielberg and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner ( Angels in America, Caroline, or Change), who has earned Oscar nominations for his screenplays for Spielberg’s Lincoln and Munich. The film is produced by three-time Oscar nominee Kristie Macosko Krieger ( West Side Story, The Post), Spielberg and Kushner.
