Sundance Fave 'Concussion' Is a Sexy, Sometimes Troubling Look at Sexuality and Self-Worth (TRAILER)

The title of Stacie Passon's new film "Concussion" is a bit of a misdirect. The eponymous baseball accident in the first five minutes of the film could well be the cause of everything that follows, but it could also be little more than an instigating incident--a fluke of life that separates what was before from what is now. It's a testament to Passon's subtle and somewhat conflicting film that it's impossible to tell just what the concussion in "Concussion" really signifies.
