ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at a clip from Lynn Shelton’s latest film, Touchy Feely, which is available On Demand and on iTunes today, August 1st, and hits limited theaters on September 6th.
Touchy Feely is a closely observed examination of a family whose delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels. Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), is a sought after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine and convention, running a flagging dental practice and co-dependently enlisting the assistance of his emotionally stunted daughter Jenny (Ellen 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).
Meanwhile, rumors of Paul’s “healing touch” begin to miraculously invigorate his practice as well as his life outside the office. As Abby navigates her way through a soul-searching identity crisis, her formerly skeptical brother discovers a whole new side of himself. Touchy Feely is about the experience of living in one’s own skin, both literally and figuratively. Allison Janney, Ron Livingston, and Tomo Nakayama co-star.
