[16 of 52 in #52FilmsByWomen]
Concussion opens with Abby (Robin Weigert) getting a…concussion from an accident involving their children. This seems to be the final straw that forces Abby to finally acknowledges her boredom with her monotone suburban family life and begin seeking a life of adventure on her own. One that doesn’t involve her wife Kate (Julie Fain Lawrence) or their two children.
Abby begins working as a call-girl under the name Eleanor, entertaining clients at a secluded loft away from their suburban family home. There she meets various people, some of them have fairly interesting personalities, where Abby relishes in her alter-ego as Eleanor.
