Don't be Timid

This is not your typical “affair” type movie, whilst a little reminisce of Unfaithful with Diane Lane and Richard Gere, this is something completely different. 2014 is definitely the year of the LGBT, openness is now, thankfully, OK. This film explores sex, parenting, feminism and boredom from a very human point of view. Leave your preconceptions at the door, they really won’t be needed.


Robin Weigert plays Abby, a bored housewife and mother. After banging her head (hence the title) and deciding that she needs more in her life, instead of going back to work in the normal sense, Abby decides to become a lesbian escort. Its a very considered and powerful story, directed by Stacie Passon and on screens in the UK as of the 16th May. It should definitely be seen, the story-telling and cinematography is compelling.
