About The Film
An insightful and surprisingly intimate portrait, SPIELBERG chronicles the extraordinary life and career of a movie titan whose commercial and artistic triumphs forever changed Hollywood. Exploring Steven Spielberg’s influences and recurring themes of his oeuvre, film clips include blockbusters (Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind), prestige pictures (Saving Private Ryan, Lincoln), films that stoked controversy (The Color Purple, Munich) and even misfires (1941). A key segment addresses his once strained relationship with Judaism, redefined by Schindler’s List and his remarriage to Kate Capshaw. Prominent friends, stars, artistic collaborators, and film critics weigh in with testimonials and anecdotes, as the normally private Spielberg talks candidly about his filmography and heartbreaks, to reveal the evolution of a wunderkind to visionary storyteller.
