From IMDb: “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.”

Poster Rating: B

Review: It has a certain visual charm, but it’s also about as simplistic as you can possibly get, even thematically.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: You can always expect a lot of emotional heft in a Steven Spielberg film and the barest hint of that is present, but it seems to present the whole film to the audience without a desire to increase their interest over time. It lays it all out there and that might not be enough to sell it.

Oscar Prospects:

This should be one of the major Oscar players. With a Toronto win for the audience award, a Best Picture nomination is all but guaranteed. This is a movie about moviemaking from a wunderkind director that never lost his mojo, so it should be a key competitor, especially for Michelle Williams.
