Sundance 2013: RADiUS-TWC Acquires Sexy Lesbian Drama 'Concussion'

"Concussion"
RADiUS-TWC has picked up its second film of the Sundance Film Festival, grabbing North American rights to Stacie Passon’s dramatic competition film “Concussion” in a seven-figure deal. The company plans an early fall release.

RADiUS picked up the opening-night documentary “Twenty Feet From Stardom” Friday.

“Concussion” stars Robin Weigert as a married lesbian housewife who after a blow to the head begins a second life as an escort in Manhattan. Maggie Siff, Johnathan Tchaikovsky, Julie Fain Lawrence, Emily Kinney and Laila Robins co-star. “Go Fish” writer-director Rose Troche produced. Anthony Cupo and Cliff Chenfeld are executive producers.

"We were mesmerized by ‘Concussion’ and the job Stacie did in creating such rich, relatable characters,” said RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego. “This film made an indelible impression anchored by Robin's exceptional performance — one of the best we've seen on screen in a very long time."

Quinn and Janego negotiated the deal with Paradigm's Ben Weiss and attorney Andre Des Rochers on behalf of the filmmakers.

RADiUS-TWC released the 2012 Sundance comedy "Bachelorette" last year and has "Only God Forgives" and "Erased" forthcoming.
