TOUCHY FEELY is a dramedy written and directed by Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister, Humpday), stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Josh Pais, Scoot McNairy, Ron Livingston, and Tomo Nakayama.
Premiere in competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, it is a closely observed examination of a family whose delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels. Abby (DeWitt), is a sought after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Pais) thrives on routine and convention, running a flagging dental practice and co-dependently enlisting the assistance of his emotionally stunted daughter Jenny (Page). Suddenly, transformation touches everyone. Abby develops an uncontrollable aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her occupation impossible but severely hinders the passionate love life between her and her boyfriend (Scoot McNairy).
