From first-time feature director Stacie Passon, the indie drama Concussion is a poignant sexual examination of Abby (Robin Weigert in a truly stand-out performance), a 40-something lesbian housewife who begins to wonder if her suburban life and marriage is truly what she wants anymore. Her newfound desire to explore her sexuality results in a double life as a high-end escort, which clearly complicates things.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actress Robin Weigert (Sons of Anarchy, Deadwood) talked about how she got offered this role, how she saw the quality of the role over the quantity of the scenes, even though she’s in almost every moment of the film, the biggest challenges in making this character believable and relatable, finding the emotional levels for the character, and how the film evolved during shooting and editing. She also talked about what she remembers most fondly about her time on the HBO series Deadwood, and what it’s like to work on the FX series Sons of Anarchy. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
