Check out a new trailer for Stacie Passon’s erotic drama “Concussion”, which is essentially the same as the Red Band trailer released a while back, but minus all the T&A. It looks sexy and gritty and all that good indie art house stuff. Apparently it’s also a little funny, too, which I didn’t necessarily get from this trailer.
You go, ladies.
Written and directed by Stacie Passon in an auspicious directing debut effort, and produced by Rose Troche, 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 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.
Starring Robin Weigert and Maggie Siff, along with Daniel London and Ben Shenkman.
In theaters and on demand this October 4th.
