This was SO MUCH BETTER than I expected. the lead is such a hot mom and I couldn't take my eyes off her the entire film. the only reason i rated this a 9 was for the ending. this movie deserved a great finale but it's still worth the watch.
Concussion (by doctorsmoothlove)
Note: I streamed this film from Netflix on a 4K TV. Good image quality and good movie."Concussion" takes place within the mind of an early 40s housewife, Abby, who is unhappy in her marriage. She and her wife are more like roommates with children than a married couple. One afternoon while renovating an apartment with a handyman, Abby finishes her work and hires a female escort to who compliments her on her skills in the bedroom. This leads to a newfound hobby, or maybe, a passing fancy for Abby.Abby is a depressed character. It's clear she isn't that interested in her <more>
marriage or even her children. The film threads the line very carefully to avoid any melodrama or cheese presented by this premise. Abby's micro affairs don't seem to offer her any more peace than that of sexual satiety. The numerous sex scenes do not titillate the viewer. Many of the scenes show only a portion of the coitus or the beginning/end. The rest is left to our imagination, which it should be. We don't feel anything from these scenes but what actor Robin Weigert wants us to see: melancholy.Concussion is a study in control by Robin Weigert and director Stacie Passon. Abby eventually meets a fellow mom, Sam, from her children's elementary school as a client. The two of them have obvious physical chemistry and share a sense of friendship. We think and even hope that Abby will finally have some type of passion in her life. And she doesn't. Abby can't understand why Sam would want to pay for an escort when she has a husband who appears totally into her. Sam says she's just bored. Aren't we all.The film succeeds because it's free from any sort of an agenda. The same-sex story has little relevance to the plot. What is missing, if anything, is an idea of how Abby came to be in this phase of her life. Has she always been this way? I was engrossed enough in the physical storytelling that I wanted to know more.
Or life altering. I don't think you have to be lesbian to make a film about lesbians, but in this case it clearly did not hurt. But to reduce it only to that positively/negatively would not be fair to the movie and the story it tries to tell. The script is clever without trying. Of course some might only be intrigued or appalled as already mentioned by the lesbian theme. Hope you can see through that and concentrate on the movie and its themes.It's about love in general, about loss and life and many other things. Dialog is really good, the cast is amazing. It was one of the positive <more>
surprises at the Berlin International Festival. I can only recommend it
I watched this movie a few days ago, and I thought it was OK, but something happened. In the days that followed, it stayed with me. I actually found myself thinking about it at work, at home, at night. It was a great character study and a compelling drama of a woman who had lost herself, as often does, within a marriage. Doesn't matter whether the union is straight or gay, it often happens. After a couple years in a relationship, there is a tempering of passions and real life takes over; the house, the kids, car payments, jobs and everyday life is rather boring and what do you do when one <more>
partner decides there is no room in her life for passion? The performances were excellent, Robin Weigert was exceptionally good in the lead role of Abby and the writing was very good. I just wish Maggie Siff's character would have had a few more scenes. : What I loved most is that even though this is a movie with "lesbians"...it's not really about lesbians...it's just about people and relationships and the primary character could have been straight, I don't think the movie would have been any different. I was impressed with the handling of homosexuality, finally in a movie, that didn't discuss it or analyze it...it just was.
This movie implies that . . . (by tadpole-596-918256)
. . . lesbians married to each other are sort of asexual unless they suffer a concussion. The movie begins with divorce lawyer Kate Abelman Julie Fain Lawrence and her wife, interior designer Abby Robin Weigert stuck in a routine of raising their two elementary or Pre-school children, taking care of the house, going to work, and working out Abby is some sort of a fitness freak, running in her neighborhood, running on a treadmill, pedaling in a gym with a horde of other women on long ranks of stationary bikes, etc. . On the rare occasions when Abby "is in the mood" for loving, <more>
she wakes up Kate, who reaches over to get something started--but falls back asleep 8 seconds later! This story implies things would continue like this indefinitely, but Kate and Abby's son pegs a baseball off the corner of Abby's left eye so hard WHO taught him to throw like this? CONCUSSION's big mystery she suffers a bloody concussion. As soon as her eye is healed, Kate takes "Eleanor" as her new sex worker name, and starts getting naked with any female who has $800 to spare. When the other Junior Leaguer soccer moms at her kids' school in this case, it's lacrosse start climbing in bed with Abby/Eleanor, things get complicated at the local grocery store.
