Stacie Passon’s Concussion opens at Picturehouse Cinemas on the 16th May. This modern-day twist on BELLE DE JOUR is a sexy, provocative story about a woman who turns her fantasy life into reality – and then faces the consequences.
When wealthy 40-something Abby (Weigert, Deadwood) is hit in the head by her son’s baseball, she begins to yearn for something more than her banal suburban life. She buys a pied-à-terre in Manhattan, and her pent-up libido draws her into a double life as a high-class hooker for female clients.
But as Abby’s decisions become increasingly reckless, we realise that she won’t be able to keep her secret for long. Writer-director Passon’s accomplished debut features breakout performances by Weigert and Siff (Mad Men), and its mix of sensuality and poignancy will ignite a conversation about sexual discovery as a means of finding your true self.
