THE CHESS PLAYER  

About

Imprisoned by Nazis. Solitary confinement. A stolen book of chess games is a prisoner’s only grasp on sanity. Fighting off madness by choosing schizophrenia, he survives, dividing himself into two feuding chess masters. A reimagining of Zweig's classic.

'An absolute must see' (Broadway Baby)
