Concussion, film review: Belle de Jour without much of the humour or surrealism

(15) Stacie Passon, 96 mins Starring: Robin Weigert, Julie Fain Lawrence, Maren Shapero

Stacie Passon's drama is like Luis Buñuel's Belle de Jour without much of the humour or surrealism.

Robin Weigert plays a middle-class, middle-aged lesbian wife and mother who, after receiving a concussive blow on the head, becomes a prostitute for other women.

Her clients are a varied mix, ranging from overweight students to career women. It is hard to work out what she is searching for in her new life or what, beyond suburban boredom, she is trying to escape.
