Exclusive: Watch a Very Sexy, NSFW Trailer for the Lesbian Drama Concussion

Sundance hit Concussion opens with a startling shot: Suburban Abby (Robin Weigert) bleeds profusely from the head, lashing out at her children who caused the title accident, as her wife looks on, startled by Abby's venom. Abby is soon patched up, returning to her placid life as a picture-perfect, upper-middle-class lesbian mother … only something is jarred within her, and it isn't long before Abby starts to engineer a double life, taking on the persona of a high-end escort during the day in Manhattan before retreating to the suburban safety of her wife and kids at night. How sensually charged and precarious do Abby's newfound day trips become? You'll get the gist if you watch this exclusive red-band trailer for Concussion, but be advised that it's NSFW in all the best ways. The critically praised drama, directed by first-timer Stacie Passon and produced by Rose Troche, opens in theaters and on VOD October 4.
