Concussion Reviews

Richard Knight
Windy City Times

A very subtle, sophisticated take on modern relationships driven, naturally, by [Robin] Weigert's nuanced, hard edged performance.

Movie Talk

Abby's pursuit would appear wildly implausible, but Weigert makes it seem perfectly natural, conveying Abby's restless longings and wry curiosity, the sense that she is exploring her identity as much as fulfilling her desires

The suggestion that prostitution is a risk-free route to self-discovery for suburban soccer moms is glib bordering on offensive, but Robin Weigert is tough and terrific in the lead.

Observer [UK]

Much of the narrative may not ring true, but Weigert's performance is warm and engaging, lending not just heart, but much needed credibility.

A sharply observed odyssey of middle-aged self-discovery, this strikingly offbeat film may feel a little vague in its approach, but it carries a strong kick.

This is London

It boasts a fantastic turn from TV veteran Robin Weigert and is visually reminiscent of Todd Haynes's Safe (it's beautiful to look at).

Daily Express

An intriguing, independent drama with a notable performance from Robin Weigert who played Calamity Jane in Deadwood.

Guardian

It's not entirely plausible, to be honest, but there's an easy naturalism to the drama and a sharp intelligence behind the camera.

Mike McCahill
Daily Telegraph

Passon's film arcs into view as a beguilingly flighted curveball - and, as its protagonist's progress attests, the occasional one of those keeps everybody on their toes.

Antonia Quirke
Financial Times

Middle-class, very self-consciously egalitarian New Jersey is lucidly captured, especially the mildly daring dinner parties.

Concussion is wonderfully shot, a confident and accomplished debut for a filmmaker with a promising career ahead of her.

The List

The film's unpredictability and irrepressible sense of humour ensure that it stays on the right side of the jaded cynicism that afflicts so many US indies set amid this sort of moneyed dissatisfaction.

Anna Smith
Empire Magazine

Director Stacie Passion doesn't try to ape Bu˝uel's surrealist twist on ennui in Belle Du Jour, instead crafting an enthralling, modern tale in which intimacy is a goal rarely achieved.

We Got This Covered

Concussion is well acted, well written and genuinely entertaining, but I just wish that it had rung a little less hollow.

An engrossing meditation on modern alienation and the ways we cope when we discover something missing in our lives.

[Weigert] and Passon team up to create an indelible portrait of a woman who may always be a work in progress.

It's an unexpected deviation from the norm, sold with intelligence and intimacy.
