Critic Reviews for The Split Miniseries

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2)

Written, directed and produced by women, The Split is a series whose major male characters are largely defined in relation to the female characters.

The all-female Defoe family had coped for 30 years until the sudden return of father Oscar dropped a grenade into the clan's dynamics.

Abi Morgan's drama foregrounds steely, controlled women - with male characters tending towards emotional incontinence.

The longer I watched, the more compelling I found it. What a relief to be presented with a drama in which women are allowed to enjoy their work, and even to be wildly good at it, without their private lives also being offered up as a total failure.

It is the finely drawn portrait of fraught family ties that makes the show. They also make up for its weaknesses, which include patches of uninspired dialogue.

[Writter Abi] Morgan nervously ladles on plotline after plotline, each less interesting than the last.

Britain's (much shorter) answer to The Good Wife is a complicated and thoughtful portrait of marriage with predictable plots but a delightful style and cast.

This fantasy aspect is one of the show's pleasures. So was the superb acting, be it Findlay's theatrical mix of bullying and coyness as the abandoned wife-turned-crack attorney Ruth or Mangan's subtle turn as a decent man...

[Writter] Morgan's dialogue is never less than brilliant...but her plot points can be a little crashing.

Jun 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The Split is sassy all right and its themes are rich for exploration, but its mix of sharpness and heart could turn out to be a strength or a weakness.
