Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” Takes Toronto by Storm, Rapturous Audience Response for 1st Ever Festival Entry

September 12, 2022

But Steven Spielberg for the first time ever brought a film to a festival and knocked everyone out. “The Fabelmans” played in Toronto tonight to a rapturous audience. “The Fabelmans” is Spielberg’s most personal work ever but he assured the sold out audience at Princess of Wales theater that he’s not retiring. I was lucky enough to have lunch with Spielberg’s mother maybe a decade ago at kosher restaurant in Los Angeles. It’s the kind of movie we go see in theaters to have the communal feeling of the shared human experience.
