Story


"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).

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..mystifying dramedy involves a masseuse who develops an unexplained repulsion toward human skin..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..Shelton's latest is warm but less endearing than its predecessors..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..worse than the goofy premise, Shelton fails to enliven the incredibly talk-heavy (but subtext-free) inaction with any sort of visual flair..”
by Violet Lucca [Village Voice]
