The Torbay U3A Film Club next meets at The Blue Walnut Cafe Bar & Cinema on Tuesday 20th February, doors open at 6pm, screening starts at 7pm

The film for February 2024 is 'The Fablemans' a coming of age drama and semi-
biographical story loosely based on Steven Spielberg's adolescence and his first
inspirational years as a filmmaker.

A little boy becomes inspired by a film about the circus and becomes so enamoured
by what he sees, thus the first seeds of moviemaking are planted. Conceived by
Spielberg and his sister, the project was held back for 20 years as he had
reservations about telling his family's story.

Sammy Fableman is a young 18 year old film maker who explores the power of film
which helps him to see the truth about his dysfunctional family. He uncovers a family
secret which he captures on film!

Written in collaboration with Tony Kushner, the film stars Gabriel La Belle as Sammy,
supported by Michelle Williams, Paul Danoe, Seth Rogan and Judd Hursch. Named as
one of the top ten films of 2022 it received seven nominations at the Academy of Arts
and a Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture for Drama and the Best Director
award for Spielberg. John Williams received his 53rd nomination at the age of 90 for
the musical score.

The Fablemans is a good solid family drama, illustrating the power of film and the
imagination, enabling us to understand ourselves and the worlds around us, and
which helped to make Stephen Spielberg the great filmmaker that he has become.
