The Fabelmans’ will have a small release in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 11 and a nationwide expansion on Nov. 23.
Spielberg wrote the script with longtime collaborator Tony Kushner (‘Lincoln,’ ‘Munich,’ ‘West Side Story’), and the story is loosely based on Olds’ life story, focusing primarily on Sammy ‘s teenage years and relationship with his parents, who, like Olds, lived in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
Spielberg himself lived in Phoenix in the late 1950s and early 1960s, making home movies and adventure films with his father’s 8mm camera while confronting anti-Semitism.
