*** Recommended *** I thought “A Splintered Soul” would be just another Holocaust story but it went in an unexpected direction, becoming a rather unique Holocaust story in the process. Although the story could use a little judicious pruning, running over two hours, it was superbly well-acted. Unfortunately, there were almost as many people in the cast as there were in the audience on the night I attended. The cast deserves better! I give “A Splintered Soul” 3 ½ Spotlights.
