About this title


A biography of the successful filmmaker who won an Oscar in 1995 for "Schindler's List."

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-7. Powers begins his biography of movie director Spielberg on the set of Schindler's List. This dramatic opening provides an interesting framework for what might have been just the standard bio. Despite his success with movies such as Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and E.T., Spielberg was never sure that he had what it took to be a serious filmmaker--nor were the critics--until Schindler's List. Spielberg's lack of confidence, even at this stage of his career, will intrigue young people who may not realize that adults are not always self-assured. The book, which details Spielberg's life and his movies, does a particularly good job of explaining the controversies that have surrounded some of the pictures, such as The Color Purple. It is also nicely designed, with plenty of black-and-white and color photographs. A filmography, a list of sources, and a bibliography are appended. Fresh subject, good treatment. Ilene Cooper
