Our Take

7.3
The Staff

This legal drama is about a kind of lawyer that is rarely romanticized: a divorce attorney. In fact, a family of them: two sisters and their mother who have the same job.

“There is a paradox in a divorce lawyer who’s actually averse to divorce”, a coworker tells one of the daughters, played masterfully by British TV veteran Nicola Walker.

In fact, The Split is not so much about divorce as it is about family, what it takes to make it work and what causes it to become dysfunctional. And there is perhaps no better illustration than the dynamics of a family whose profession is litigating for and against families being together.
