Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
Split is written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Yeah, I know, but Mr. Hot and Cold actually did well with The Visit a few years ago. Let’s just wait and see. But, the concept is really good and James McAvoy is a decent actor. So I’m hopeful.
Split stars James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula and Haley Lu Richardson, and it’s in a theater today near you today.
