The Fabelmans | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Even though the film is based on Spielberg's life, it manages quite artfully to not feel too artful; it refuses to turn itself into a fable. Rated: 3/5 Feb 10, 2023 Full Review The Fabelmans | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Anupama Chopra Film Companion The Fabelmans is a film that shifts something inside you. Working through one of the most crushing events of his own life, Spielberg exhorts us to discover, yet again, the enduring magic of the movies. Feb 10, 2023 Full Review The Fabelmans | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Mark Kermode Observer (UK) Possibly the most lavishly mounted home movie ever made. Appropriately enough, that is its great strength and its fatal weakness. Rated: 3/5 Jan 29, 2023 Full Review The Fabelmans | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Sarah Vincent Sarah G Vincent Views Spielberg has grown beyond casting blame and moralizing for now. It is all pure emotion and empathy though he holds space for that past self who needed to place people in categories such as villains or heroes. Jun 2, 2024 Full Review The Fabelmans | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Christian Eulinberg InSession Film It’s brilliantly narrated, shot, and well-directed. Spielberg never fails to deliver.

ken elkgrove tom hanks great actor Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/25/23 Full Review Shirley We loved that the people were real. The family was living toward each other. The drama which tore them apart happens. But, there was no hateful language or violence towards each other. We would have loved to see the later part of their lives. There needs to be a part ll made. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/15/23 Full Review rocktrim probably would have enjoyed more if i knew the backstory a little better. the movie felt like it was making the mom as the bad guy, when in fact, she was empowering them.
