In his new semi-autobiographical film, The Fabelmans, famed director Steven Spielberg narrates his own narrative, something he claims he “never had the nerve” to do before but is glad he did now.

The director who has won multiple awards admitted that he was “hiding” from the complete story since he was a teenager, despite having explored it “in parts and parcels” during his lengthy career.

The picture, which features Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, and Gabriel LaBelle, won best director Steven Spielberg at the 80th Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday night (10 January). Additionally, it won the award for best drama film later that night.

Critical reception has been positive ever since, with the film currently boasting a 91% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which calls it “part memoir, half homage to the power of movies.”

What does Steven Spielberg have to say about it?

When Spielberg accepted the award for outstanding director, he commented, “I’ve been hiding from this story since I was 17 years old.” A lot of roadblocks were intentionally placed by me in this tale.
