Actor Julian Glover was another famous face at the event, attending alongside his wife Isla Blair. 

The Fabelmans is a semi-autobiographical film. It details the dissolution of the marriage of Mitzi (Michelle Williams) and Burt Fabelman (Paul Dano) as seen through the eyes of Spielberg’s surrogate, played by Gabriel.

The director’s alter ego alter ego in the film is Sammy Fabelman, the firstborn child and only son of Burt and Mitzi, who, in turn, are thinly disguised versions of Spielberg’s own parents: Arnold Spielberg and his wife Leah.

The film opens with Sammy being taken by his parents to the pictures for the first time.

Steven recently shared that his fears over the Covid-19 pandemic inspired him to make the film.

He said: ‘I was terrified this was an end-of-days, and epic-level event, I mean an extinction-level event, that was happening to the world.’ 

The filmmaker added that his fear made him decide which movie he truly needed to make, in case it would his last one: ‘If I got the chance to make one more movie, it was going to be this story.’
