"The film is frank in its depiction of sex, with many highly charged erotic scenes... Robin Weigert is spectacular in the film, delivering a performance of intense vulnerability and complete abandon." — AfterEllen.com
"Concussion isn’t some sultry, titillating sex-fest, it’s an exploration of not just sexuality and human growth, but... a brilliantly nuanced look at the complications of modern relationships." — Film Threat
