— ‘‘If I track what might be the source of it now, it’s that the civil rights movement of our era has to do with sex and sexuality. And so there’s been this sort of repositioning of it as a central issue as opposed to a titillating side issue. It’s a core issue to do with what and who we are. And to speak of it as anything but that is to diminish our humanity, really. And once that is cracked open, it applies to absolutely everyone, which is why the movement that starts with a gay and lesbian movement is actually a movement that is everyone.’’ — Robin Weigert, who plays a woman who becomes a prostitute as a way of working through a mid-life crisis brought on by a baseball to the head in the dramatic contender ‘‘Concussion.’’
