Mini Lez Film Assessment: Concussion – HER

Top quality lesbian flicks

typically feel they are tricky to find


and this refers to real typically, specifically if you’ve browsed the LGBT selection on Netflix.  The low finances, exhausted storylines and overacting leave we bored off our very own minds but still passing away observe our selves represented in motion pictures.  We keep awaiting a lot more movies like

Kiss Myg,

Blue Could Be The Warmest Colour


The Kids All Are Right

in the future along however these flicks tend to be one time per year if that.

Luckily, in 2010, there can be a big lesbian film being released that truly has actually a good software, incredible shows and units that don’t appear like they may be manufactured from cardboard.  Its known as


and it’s really compiled by novice movie director and journalist,

Stacie Passon


plus it was actually presented contained in this year’s BFI Flare festival for LGBTQ films

The wonderful

Robin Weigert

plays Abby, a bored, sexually-frustrated homemaker exactly who starts to have a two fold existence, from the the woman wife and young ones, as a high-priced hooker.  The woman marraige to divorce lawyer, Kate (

Julie Fain Lawrence

) is performing great except for the bedroom in which Kate has shed the woman sex-drive, leaving Abby consistently doing exercises in the fitness center and immersing herself in rennovating a New York apartment.  Their own instance of one-sided lesbian bed death (yes, we hate this term as well) will be the just instability within couple but Abby realises that she needs this attention and chooses to manage the woman sex again.

Viewing Abby navigate her intimate experiences together with other ladies while maintaining a healthy and balanced and enjoying relationship with her girlfriend is actually finally truly fulfilling. Certainly, sex together with other ladies actually the absolute most respectable thing a character is capable of doing but, at least it really is actual and real person and just what that fictional character believed she needed to carry out.  Are we able to say equivalent for any other major lesbians ladies?

The movie has an excellent software with well-rounded however flawed characters, on a clean, crisp visual design and additionally be in a position to communicate with many women, both gay and right, who’ve ever even regarded as straying using their associates.  Cheating does not immediately allow you to be a villain and that there are a great number of how to be happy.  Additionally, not merely one associated with lesbian characters eventually ends up with some guy at some time; a welcome modification!
