Ellen Page Rosemarie DeWitt Lynn Shelton Josh Pais Kate Bayley Alycia Delmore

The trailer for Touchy Feeling, the new indie-flick written and directed by Humpday's Lynn Shelton, has rolled out online. It stars Rosemarie DeWitt as Abby, a well-respected massage therapist who lives life to the fullest, while her quiet brother Paul struggles with his angst-ridden teenage daughter, played by Ellen Page.

Things get a little complicated when Abby's boyfriend offers her a home at his place and things go from bad to worse when she finds herself unable to face a new client having developed a phobia of skin-to-skin contact. Oh, and Abby's niece develops a crush on her boyfriend and attempts to seduce him. OH NO SHE DIDN'T.

Meanwhile, brother Paul's life begins to turn around when a patient claims his healing hands cured his toothache. Suddenly, his waiting room is packed, though can his newfound 'magic touch' help his sister Abby regain the fun in her life?

Touchy Feely Trailer


Abby is a particularly well-rated massage therapist who enjoys living life to the fullest while her quiet and correct brother Paul is the opposite with his failing dental practise and an awkward teenage daughter to look after. Abby needs a new place to live and when her boyfriend offers her a home at his place, things start to get complicated for her. On a regular day at work, she finds herself unable to face her new client having developed a phobia of skin-to-skin contact which not only puts her career in the gutter, but also drastically affects her relationship with her boyfriend. Meanwhile, her niece Jenny develops a crush on him and attempts to seduce him despite his love for Abby. Paul's life has also taken a dramatic change after a patient claimed that Paul's healing hands cured his toothache, leading to a much fuller waiting room at his surgery. But will his new found magic touch help Abby regain her life back? 

'Touchy Feely' is the hearting-tugging drama about the unpredictability of our futures and the importance of family support. Directed and written by Lynn Shelton ('My Effortless Brilliance', Humpday', 'Your Sister's Sister'), it's a movie that will see a few laughs, a few sighs and definitely a few tears.

Your Sister's Sister Review


Weak
As with Humpday, writer-director Shelton plays around with transgressive sexuality in this lively, watchable comedy-drama. The problem is that instead of dissipating, the underlying sense of homophobia is aggressively offensive this time.

A year after his brother's death, Jack (Duplass) has become best friends with his brother's ex Iris (Blunt), who suggests that he take some time out in her father's island cabin outside Seattle. When he arrives, Iris' sister Hannah (DeWitt) is there, nursing her pain from the breakup of a long-term relationship. After a few drinks they end up in bed, which is a problem for two reasons: Hannah is a lesbian who wants a baby, and Iris arrives the next day to tell her sister that she's in love with Jack.
