An astonishingly nuanced performance from Robin Weigert, here. From bored housewife, to awkward prostitute, then vibrantly liberated woman, and back. Though the trailer tends to oversell the sexy, this movie is really all about Weigert's tour de force playbook as an actress. I'll see it again.

New York Daily News
Concussion is a melancholy affair which keeps its lead character at a distance, making for somewhat frustrating viewing. But the reserved tone also makes this movie worth an afternoon visit. Full Review
Gabe Toro
The Playlist
This is a frequently titillating film, and Weigert can’t help but add dimensions to that onscreen intimacy and vivid exploration of intimacy, not just seduction but also the shared sensuality of a post-coital chat. Full Review
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
The A.V. Club
The viewer is presented with a series of caustic, vignette-like scenes which tease bigger themes but end before they can tackle them, as though the film had accidentally started a conversation it didn’t want to have — an impression underscored by the tidy, arbitrary ending. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Although Weigert is convincing as Abby, Passon's attitude toward the character is hazy. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
A fine sense of yuppie suffocation—Spin-class listlessness and workaholic disconnection—sets up this indie as a potential suburban satire. Full Review
