Coming-of-age drama directed and co-written by Steven Spielberg. The Fabelmans (2022) centers on aspiring filmmaker Sammy Fabelman (Gabriel LaBelle) growing up in post-World War II era Arizona, who discovers a shattering family secret and explores how the power of films can help him see the truth about each other and ourselves.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Mitzi Fabelman: Movies are dreams that you never forget.
Burt Fabelman: The lights change how everything looks. It’s hard to find our house.
Young Sammy Fabelman: Ours is the dark house with no lights.
Mitzi Fabelman: [to young Sammy] What was your favorite part?
Mitzi Fabelman: In this family it’s the scientists versus the artists. Sammy’s on my team, takes after me.
Sammy’s Friend: [to Sammy] What kind of movie are we going to make?
Mitzi Fabelman: [to Burt, referring to Sammy] You dismiss what he does that’s playful or imaginative. But you could afford to be a little encouraging.
Uncle Boris: [referring to Mitzi] She should have been that concert piano player. What she’s got in her heart is what you got.
