June 28, 2014
A very subtle, sophisticated take on modern relationships driven, naturally, by [Robin] Weigert's nuanced, hard edged performance.
June 15, 2014
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
May 19, 2014
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.

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.
