Episode 86: The Fabelmans (2022)

This week it’s back to Spielberg as we leap with Paul Dano to 2022 coming-of-age drama The Fabelmans. We enjoy discussing a film about a young boy obsessed with film making, and how this film relates to aspects of Spielbergs life. We hope you enjoy listening.

Season 4, Episode 5

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Paul Dano

To: The Fabelmans

Chosen by:

Actor (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

We have already leaped through 3 Paul Dano films recently. (Where The Wild Things Are, The Guilty, Looper) It turns out he has done a lot of different and interesting roles. This time we go with one where he is in a more major role, The Fabelmans.

 

 

Where are we leaping to?

Director: Steven Spielberg

To: Hook

Chosen by:

Director (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Another leap with Steven Spielberg, and this time Glenn doesn’t take us to a film where he plays a featured extra for a few seconds, but an actual film he directed! It is hard to choose a Speilberg film as there are so many greats. Hopefully we will leap with him again soon to get to many more.
