Hit it on the Head

I feel like I’ve been waiting to get hit on the head forever. Wait, hold on, let me rephrase that. I’ve been waiting to see “Concussion” for what seems like forever. The movie’s premise about a wealthy married suburban lesbian mom who suffers the titular blow and decides to start turning tricks with women in the city sounds a little like it was, well, hit in the head. But the trailers show off what looks like a very rich, layered film starring Robin Weigert (a cleaned-up Calamity Jane from “Deadwood”) as the woman with the head trauma and Maggie Siff (from “Sons of Anarchy,” minus the Harleys) as one of her friends/clients. Also it’s hot. The new red-band trailer is really, really hot.

Much to my chagrin, I missed this movie when it played in my area at Frameline this past June. So I’m thrilled to see it opens Oct. 4 in theaters and on video-on-demand. At last, the wait is almost over. Now, to wear a helmet to the theater or not? One can never be too careful. This is a lesbian movie, after all.

Note: This trailer is very NSFW. And, therefore, sexy as hell.

Gonna get in trouble for this - repressed lesbian living as rich-hetero white woman gets hit on the head and turns libertine. Like the film needs the excuse that she gets hit on the head? That's weird. Visuals are gorgeous, and no doubt (ahem) stimulating, but surely we're past this kind of weird porno-creepy type plot. If she wants to get on her wild, she doesn't need a concussion. Will get all those righty, gay hatey people saying 'See debauchery is the result of concussion, not choice.'

Absolutely ridiculous plot. Bleh.

I cannot wait!

BTW, I'm pretty sure her concussion just turns from a nice upstanding suburban lesbian into a bold, urban lesbian prostitute.

What a change from the original trailer. Steamy.
