Next Screening? A boy, his mom, and the passion to make movies — “The Fabelmans”

Steven Spielberg’s semi autobiographical ode to a childhood out of the ordinary is his gift to us for the holidays.

Curious to compare this sentimental and idealized — with a little edge — fantasia of a childhood making movies with James Gray’s similarly autobiographical “Armageddon Time,” another Jewish kid determined to make art running up against parental expectations.

Two films with an Oscar winner and a four time Oscar nominee playing Jewish mamas.
