A House Made of Splinters

A House Made of Splinters ★★★½

In an age where “found family” feels like one of the most-explored themes of modern cinema, it’s nice to see a documentary tackle what that truly looks like in the real world… even if that found family is only temporary. A House Made of Splinters is incredibly sad, but also full of love, hope, and perseverance. I particularly appreciate the way these children are given ample time to be seen and heard, rather than simply commented on with adult interviews, facts, and figures. The tender, authentic moments with the kids are the memories that will stick here.
