'You're menstruating heart, it ain't bleeding enough for two, it's a midlife crisis..." From RADiUS-TWC and writer/director Stacie Passon comes the adult drama Concussion, starring Robin Weigert, Maggie Siff, Johnathan Tchaikovsky, Emily Kinney and Laila Robins. We have the first red band trailer, which delves into the life of a lesbian housewife who, after suffering a concussion, turns to prostitution to get her sex drive back. Take caution, it may be contagious.
Concussion is a poignant sexual examination of Abby (Robin Weigert in a star making breakout turn), a 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-à-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 and deliciously contained, Concussion is a keen observation of the complicated contours of midlife crisis.
