Concussion

Sometimes life pushes our buttons to the extent that an escape plan, something more substantial than a warm bath behind closed doors, seems like a welcome option. In writer-director Stacie Passon

Sometimes life pushes our buttons to the extent that an escape plan, something more substantial than a warm bath behind closed doors, seems like a welcome option. In writer-director Stacie Passon’s Concussion, Abby (Robin Weigert) suffers a blow to the head and just can’t quite stay stuck in a home as a wife and mother, so she takes off, becoming a woman named Eleanor who takes on an all-new life with a lesbian lover. Undoubtedly there’s a twist here in a tale about love and identity, but let’s hope for subtlety and a healthy dose of emotional healing. Opens Oct. 11  at Mariemont Theatre. Not screened in time for review
