Story


A poignant sexual examination of Abby (Robin Weigert in a star making breakout turn), a forty something marriedwealthy, lesbian housewife who, after suffering a blow to the head from getting smacked by her son's baseball-walks around every corner of her suburban life to confront a mounting desire for something else. She takes on a new project and purchases a pied-a-terre in Manhattan. Walking around the city streets reminds Abby what it feels like to be sexy, and her pent-up libido shakes off its inhibitions. Her newfound desire though is not a take-home item, so Abby inaugerates a double life as a high end escort.

Palpably sensual anddeliciously contained, "Concussion" is a keen observation of the complicatedcontours of midlife crisis.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..solid relationship drama centers on an unsympathetic lead..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..from the spinning classes to the small talk about probiotics and the competitive conspicuous consumption, "Concussion" offers an incisive look at a particular kind of affluence..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
