“The Fabelmans” made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, and a new trailer offers a glimpse of the latest film from acclaimed director Steven Spielberg.

Featuring a screenplay co-written by Spielberg and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner (“Angels in America”), “The Gabelmans” has been described as Spielberg’s most personal film yet, a coming-of-age story inspired by his own childhood as a movie-obsessed teenager growing up in Arizona.

Gabriel LaBelle (“The Predator”) stars as 16-year-old aspiring filmmaker Sammy Fabelman, with Michelle Williams as his artistic mother, Mitzi, and Paul Dano as his successful, scientific father, Burt. Seth Rogen plays Bennie Loewy, Burt’s best friend and Sammy’s honourary “uncle,” while Judd Hirsch is Mitzi’s Uncle Boris.

In addition, the ensemble cast includes: Jeannie Berlin as Sammy’s paternal grandmother, Hadassah Fabelman; Julia Butters as Sammy’s sister Reggie; Robin Bartlett as Sammy’s maternal grandmother Tina Schildkraut; and Keeley Karsten as Sammy’s sister Natalie.

ET Canada caught up with Williams at the TIFF premiere of “The Fabelmans”, where she shared some insight into her character.

“She was larger than life,” said Williams about Mitzi, who is inspired by Spielberg’s real-life monther. “And what she emanated so far out of her body, and it touched so many people. It was really such a an honour and a pleasure to get to embody that for for a short period of time.”

Meanwhile, Seth Rogen told ET Canada that acting in a movie based on the life of Steven Spielberg was “really surreal.”

Added Rogen: “Even to have Steven think that I could help him make his film in any way, shape or form, that I would be remotely additive to the process… it’s a bizarre feeling that I’m still processing…”

Following its premiere at TIFF, “The Fabelmans” is set to hit theatres Nov. 11.
