Written and directed by Stacie Passon in an auspicious directing debut effort, and produced by Robin Troche, Concussion is a poignant sexual examination of Abby (Robin Weigert in a star making breakout turn), forty something married wealthy, 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 through is not a take-home item, so Abby inaugurates a double life as a high-end escort. Palpably sensual and deliciously contained, Concussion is a keen observation of the complicated contours of midlife crisis. (c) Radius
