As an older teenager, Sammy, played by newcomer Gabriel LaBelle, is seen navigating the pursuit of his dream of becoming a successful filmmaker as his family struggles through life.

The semi-autobiographical film, directed by Steven Spielberg, is based on Steven’s own parents and their eventual divorce.

After the screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, Steven said of the film according to The Hollywood Reporter: ‘This film is a way of bringing my mom and dad back.

‘And it also brought my sisters closer to me than I ever thought possible. That was worth making the film for.’

The director’s mother Leah died in 2017 at the age of 97 while his father died in 2020 at the age of 103.

The log line for the film reads: ‘Growing up in post-World War II era Arizona, a young man named Sammy Fabelman discovers a shattering family secret and explores how the power of films can help him see the truth.’
