The Fabelmans (out Jan 5) won the People's Choice Award at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival and is a semi-autobiographical tale based on Steven Spielberg's upbringing. I'm mixed on this. The supporting players are one-note and underpowered (the "bullies" are the best example) but 20-year-old newcomer Canadian Gabriel LaBelle is excellent in the lead role and gives you a reason to care for 151 minutes. Grade: B.
