Most of his films deal with ordinary characters searching for or coming in contact with extraordinary beings or finding themselves in extraordinary circumstances.
In an AFI interview in August Spielberg commented on his interest in the possibility of extraterrestrial life and how it has influenced some of his films.
Spielberg described himself as feeling like an alien during childhood,  and his interest came from his father, a science fiction fan, and his opinion that aliens would not travel light years for conquest, but instead curiosity and sharing of knowledge.
A strong consistent theme in his family-friendly work is a childlike sense of wonder and faith, as attested by works such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind , E.
According to Warren Buckland,  these themes are portrayed through the use of low height camera tracking shots, which have become one of Spielberg's directing trademarks.
In the cases when his films include children E. Each of his films feature this shot utilized by the director, and the water scenes in Jaws are filmed from the low-angle perspective of someone swimming.
Another child oriented theme in Spielberg's films is that of loss of innocence and coming-of-age. Similarly, in Catch Me If You Can , Frank naively and foolishly believes that he can reclaim his shattered family if he accumulates enough money to support them.
The most persistent theme throughout his films is tension in parent-child relationships. Parents often fathers are reluctant, absent or ignorant.
Peter Banning in Hook starts off in the beginning of the film as a reluctant married-to-his-work parent who through the course of the film regains the respect of his children.
The absence of Elliott's father in E. In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade , it is revealed that Indy has always had a very strained relationship with his father, who is a professor of medieval literature, as his father always seemed more interested in his work, specifically in his studies of the Holy Grail, than in his own son, although his father does not seem to realize or understand the negative effect that his aloof nature had on Indy he even believes he was a good father in the sense that he taught his son "self reliance," which is not how Indy saw it.
Even Oskar Schindler , from Schindler's List , is reluctant to have a child with his wife. In The Color Purple , the main character, Celie, has been impregnated by her father multiple times.
Munich depicts Avner as a man away from his wife and newborn daughter. There are exceptions; Brody in Jaws is a committed family man, while John Anderton in Minority Report is a shattered man after the disappearance of his son.
This theme is arguably the most autobiographical aspect of Spielberg's films, since Spielberg himself was affected by his parents' divorce as a child and by the absence of his father.
Furthermore, to this theme, protagonists in his films often come from families with divorced parents, including E.
Little known also is Tim in Jurassic Park early in the film, another secondary character mentions Tim and Lex's parents' divorce.
The family often shown divided is often resolved in the ending as well. Following this theme of reluctant fathers and father figures, Tim looks to Dr.
Alan Grant as a father figure. Initially, Dr. Grant is reluctant to return those paternal feelings to Tim. However, by the end of the film, he has changed, and the kids even fall asleep with their heads on his shoulders.

He was made aware of the Holocaust by his parents, who he says "talked about it all the time, and so it was always on my mind.
Spielberg "rediscovered the honor of being a Jew," he says, before he made Schindler's List , when he married Kate Capshaw.
He says he made the film partly to create "something that would confirm my Judaism to my family and myself. Kate is Protestant and she insisted on converting to Judaism.
She spent a year studying, did the " mikveh ," the whole thing. She chose to do a full conversion before we were married in , and she married me after becoming a Jew.
I think that , more than anything else, brought me back to Judaism. He credits her with fueling his family's current level of observance and for keeping the "momentum flowing" in their lives, as they now observe Jewish holidays, light candles on Friday nights, and give their children Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.
Producing Schindler's List in also renewed his faith, Spielberg says, but "it really was the fact that my wife took a profound interest in Judaism.
